Simple and Fast Way to Display Christmas Cards

I was looking for a simple and easy way to display Christmas cards. In the past I have set them on the mantel, but my Christmas mantel this year and I want to see it and wouldn't be able to do that if I put a bunch of cards up there. So then I thought of the bookshelf and came up with this.....

Took less than 5 minutes. I simply taped some grosgrain ribbon on the bookshelf and used clothespins to hang the cards. Since taking the picture, I've added more ribbon and more cards. That's what I love about it - as your collection of cards grows, just add more ribbon and more clothespins! This would look great on a blank wall too!

Note to self: Straighten the books before you take a picture of the bookshelf next time. ;)

Linking up to the following link parties:


  1. But the cluttered bookshelf makes it look used and not like a pic in a magazine! :-) (Couldn't you have hidden my card? ;-) lol)
