Christmas Card Display

Here is an easy and inexpensive way to display all those Christmas cards you get each year.  I wish I could say I came up with this all by myself but I actually got this idea from a friend.  It's very clever!  You use your kitchen cabinets!

Here are my kitchen cabinets.

Here are the supplies you'll need:
packing tape
wide ribbon
Easy enough, right?

Now, just cut your ribbon long enough to wrap from the top (inside) of your cabinet around the outside and back up the bottom (inside) and tape into place.

And that's all there is to it!

Just use clothespins to attach the Christmas cards as they come in!

If you wanted you could decoupage or paint the clothespins to coordinate.

You can also use this idea for everyday, too.

Now, bring on the Christmas cards!
