Christmas Card Holder

Christmas Card Holder - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

I’ve always put the Christmas cards we receive on our refrigerator. Then they end up staying there until about mid-February. :) We are running out of space on our fridge so I wanted a different way to display all these fun cards.

I found a frame that I wasn’t using at the moment

and gathered up my Solid Grosgrain 1 1/2″ ribbon.

Sadly, I had ordered enough Solid Grosgrain White 1 1/2″ ribbon, but it was no where to be found. :( Stinkin’ Ribbon Thief! (Fist shake) I found some Solid Grosgrain Red 1 1/2″, which helped, but I think it ended looking more like the American flag. Hopefully once all the Christmas decorations are out, it will look more in place. You could use many colors, but for my taste, I would have stuck with white and let the colors in the cards stand out.

I used the cardboard piece that backs the picture in the frame. You could cut out a piece of cardboard and use that as well.

Step 1: Measure and cut all your ribbon pieces.

Step 2: Hot glue the ribbon on. Glue only the bottom of the ribbon. Line the top of the ribbon to reach just barely over the ribbon above it.

I glued my ribbon on little by little. The hot glue dries fast, and it helps with accuracy.

Make sure to keep an eye on how straight the lines are. It is a lot easier to correct this at the beginning or in the middle, rather than the end.

Step 3: Once all the ribbon is glued on, cut off the excess from the edges and seal them with your preferred method. I use the lighter.

Step 4: Put the picture back together.

Step 5: Put in your Christmas cards and enjoy!
