How to Display Holiday Cards

Do you love the annual flurry of holiday greetings, but not the tumbling mess that cards create on the mantel? The creative solution demonstrated in this video is a fun and easy way to show off your cards.

What You Need

  • wide ribbon in a festive color
    scissors
    wall adhesive tape
    small clothespins
    cards
Follow These Three Easy Steps
  1. Cut two feet of ribbon

    Unspool a length of wide ribbon about two feet long, then cut it. For a pretty look, notch each end as follows: Fold one end of the ribbon lengthwise and snip on the diagonal; repeat on the other end.

  2. Hang the ribbon

    Using a small piece of wall adhesive, affix one end of your strip of ribbon to the wall (or any vertical, flat surface) so that it hangs vertically. If you’re using multiple strips, space them about nine inches apart, at whatever height you desire.

  3. Attach cards to the ribbon

    Using small clothespins (find them at a stationery store), attach the cards to the ribbon. This will keep the cards in place and make it easy to add or move cards as new ones arrive.<br/><br/>Find more easy <a target="_self" href="http://www.realsimple.com/holidays-entertaining/holidays/christmas/five-... decorating ideas</a> here.
