Tutorial Tuesday #1 Easy Christmas/Holiday Card Hanger

Hello, Hello! It is Tutorial Tuesday!  (I’m really going to try and keep up with this!) 

Today is a really simple tutorial.  All you need is:

Holiday Cards
Scissors
Hole punch
Ribbon
Jump ring or D-ring. 

(and a place to hang your finished product.  I took down a picture that usually hangs near where people come up the stairs into our dining area.)

So I amassed the Christmas Cards we’ve received and I wanted to make a big, pretty, elaborate Christmas Card holder to use year after year, but you know, this is a busy time of year.  So! In the meantime, I’ve created this super easy way to display your Christmas or other Holiday Cards.

First, grab your ring that all the ribbon is going to hang from.  I chose the little square one, but if you don’t have any of these, just steal a jump ring from an old keychain. 

Second, punch a small hole in all your cards.  I punch on the inside of the back of the card. 

Arrange your cards, then thread the ribbon through the holes you’ve punched.  Once you have them arranged nicely, tie a small knot below the punched hole so they don’t slide down the ribbon. 

Note: If you are having a hard time threading the ribbon through the holes, use a large eyed needle.

Tie your ribbon of cards to the jump/D-ring.  If you receive more cards after you’ve assembled this, you can always add another ribbon to the ring!

Voila! There you have it! A super easy Holiday Card holder.  Use it for more than just Christmas! You can even make one of these for Birthday or Mother’s Day cards! 

Happy Crafting and Happy Holidays!
