Christmas Card Display Strip

Sunday, December 4, 2011

 We started to get Christmas cards so I made this Christmas card display strip to hold them. It was inexpensive, easy to store, and can easily be transferred if we move or decide to hang elsewhere!  I love that it can go in a visible area but is still on a wall that's out of the way!

1.  Cut ribbon to desired wall length (about 7' for mine).  Note that this could also go horizontal.  I found my glitter ribbon at Michael's in the floral section.  It has wired edges for more stability.
2.  Use a hot glue gun to secure large paper clips to the back of the ribbon
3.  Use a small tack to pin the ribbon to the wall at the top and bottom of the ribbon.
I think this was the easiest thing I've ever made! I can't wait to see it filled up!

Here's a close-up of the paper clips glued to the back:
 

Here's an example of how the paper clips hold the cards:
