i personally like to display my cards in my living room so i can enjoy the photos and greetings from friends and family throughout the christmas season. my mom collects all of hers in a cute reindeer basket on her coffee table. some people [gasp!] take a look at their cards and throw them away. tragic.
this year, i tried something different -- i stretched sparkly holiday ribbon across our front closet and pinned the cards on with clothespins. i wanted to spray paint or modpodge the clothespins, but ran out of time & steam. maybe next year. i think it looks festive and cute, though -- and it's very versatile. more cards come in the mail? just add more ribbon.
here are a few more ideas, from around the web AND from some of my favorite bloggers -- cool and creative ways to display your holiday cards.
a cute "christmas corner," complete with fresh pine boughs and beautiful cards. [from carina at crow and canary.]
clever wreath made from colorful clothespins -- this is much better door decor than mine :) [from brianne & danielle at ravenna girls]
pinned to a string of lights around a bookcase. [from melanie at fifth and hazel.]
post cards and sparkly ornaments on a cute mirror for a shimmery, festive backdrop. [from minted.]
turn them into art -- use a punch to cut circles from the holiday card patterns, then sew them into a wreath. [from better homes & gardens.]
post them on the wall. [from dana at MADE.]
