Christmas Card Display

I wanted to do something unique with the Christmas cards this year, and I was inspired by a picture from Martha Stewart.  
In this picture from Martha Stewart above, you can see they used painted clothespins to hold the cards....  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I realized I had these ready made satin ornament hangers, and decided to glue them to the back of each card.
 I hung the cards at the lowest part of the tree, and since mine is up on a table  I could do this and still have the cards visible. 
 I also don't have a stair railing to display from so this is my version...

I know this look isn't for everybody, but I'm kind of tickled with it this year! Each time I look at the tree I automatically have a chance to see the cards and enjoy them even more!
(I know my wild wrapping paper doesn't exactly make a coordinated look, but I am using up all my left over pieces of paper this year, cleaning out the old stuff!  )
What ways do you display your cards?


  1. What a great idea Liz!!! My cards always end up in a pile on the kitchen counter. I love the way you displayed them because I never know what to do with them. I'm always moving them from one side to the other to get them out of the way. Your tree is beautiful! I love how full it is!

  2. That was neat Liz...looks really good!

  3. I LOVE this idea, Liz! I also like the idea of hanging cards along the stair railing--may have to try that one!

  4. That's really cute Liz! I love it!!! I usually put mine up on a couple banners, but they are in a drawer this year!

  5. Cute idea! Mine usually end up in a basket and then we can sit down with it and look through them when we want.


  6. Very cute Idea like everyone else mine usually end up in a pile or in a basket. I really like this idea thanks for sharing.

  7. Its something looks very great, very good idea to display the cards...
    Wish you a very Happy Christmas …
    I would love if you come to visit me at

  8. Those are both great ideas...mine usually are in a pile.
    Over the years, I have bascially quit sending Christmas cards, except my family.
