Did we ever start a thread for crafts? Can't remember.
Anyways, I need help. Need to make a thingy to hang my x-mas cards up on. And don't say scotch tape. lol.
Anyone have any ideas? I haven't googled yet.

Good question. I still haven't found a card holder that I like.

What I have done in the past

Gotten plaid fabric ribbion, maybe a yard of it or so ,thumb tack it to the doorway.
then as the cards come in I take craft glue and dot it to the card and press on the ribbion. I have also used straight pins
and one year I took the squeeze clothespins painted them,glued them to the fabric and then clipped the cards . its easy,cheap and something kids could do . I have given them makers and let them go with the clothes pins in red,green,yellow,blue. then I glue the backs to the clothes pins and they press,we hang when dry. Kids are proud.

I like to get a plain wreath, then use christmas ribbon around it, and add the cards as they come in. I use the glue dots to keep them on.
