I sent my Holiday cards out late this year, and I’m glad that I wasn’t the only one. It seems like the majority of the cards showed up after Wednesday of last week. I was waiting to do a display until I got the majority of my cards. I usually tape my cards to the back of the front door, and I wanted to be a little more organized with my cards this year. I get so inspired, ok maybe a little jealous by all of those fun craft blogs I read. It inspires me to be more creative.
I took ten feet of white plastic coated chain (package found at Lowe’s), wooden clothespins (Walmart), and put up three tiny nails on the top of my shutters. I just looped the chain around the nails. I then used the clothespins to secure the photo cards onto my display. I only used my picture/photo cards on this display. I have the non-photo cards sitting around on tables, etc.
At the beginning of this year, I wrote a post about “Preserving My Holiday Cards”. This will be my fourth year doing this. I love looking back at all of the creative and beautiful cards that my friends and family have sent over the years. This is a great idea of you want to keep your cards.
I hope to enjoy my cards up on display for another day, at least until my husband goes on his rampage of taking everything down. He already took down all the Holiday outdoor lights on Sunday. There are piles of stuff all over the garage. Someday, the garage will be clean again, right?
