Pretty Ribbon Christmas Card Display

  I'm happy to report that I'm pretty much finished my Christmas preparations.



Baking & Food Gifts?

Christmas crafts?
Lots of checks there. And more I would like to add! :)

As of today - check!

I have at last put up my ribbon Christmas card display - the last of my decorating this year.

It's quite easily made with two widths of ribbon (non-wired), some pretty paper clips, & a smaller width of ribbon to attach the paper clips.

Start by cutting your ribbons to the length of your door (or wherever you plan to hang your display). Notch the ends.

Layer the ribbons & pin at alternating lengths, allowing space for both portrait (10") or landscape (7") oriented cards.

Tie small lengths of the narrowest ribbon to your paper clips & stitch to ribbon.

Tack to the top of your door(s) & display your Christmas cards!

Now that my Christmas prep is pretty much done, I can enjoy Christmas break with my family & if I choose to do more crafting or baking, it's just gravy, so to speak. 

I hope you're getting your to do list done & have some time to enjoy the season too.
