DIY Christmas Card Display

The holidays really bring out the “crafty lady” in me. I go all out decorating my house and displaying Christmas cheer everywhere!

I found a blog post by Stacy Johnson on how to creatively display your Christmas cards and it really is pure genius.

All you need are the jumbo size binder clips, scrapbook paper, ribbon, rubber cement, paper clips, and beads or buttons.

You just cut the ribbon/paper to fit the binder clip and use rubber cement to glue them on. Then, use a paper clip to secure it in place while it dries. Voila! Super adorable Christmas card stands.

LOVE IT.
