Organizing All of those Christmas Cards!

December 24, 2008 at 12:37 pm Leave a comment

By now, you’ve probably received a bunch of Christmas cards and are wondering what to do with them. They can easily clutter up your space, but at the same time, many of them have such beautiful scenes and pictures that you want to show them off and use them to add to your festive decorations. Here are a couple of ways to display them:

On a string – Hang a colorful piece of string or clear piece of fishing line from one corner of a room to the other, or other appropriate place. Hang each card with a paperclip (for an invisible hanger) or decorated clothes pin. You’ll have a wonderful display and a present reminder of how many blessings you have in your life!

On the mantle (or another designated spot) – You can make a nice display of holiday scenes by standing up all of your cards along your fireplace mantle, on top of an upright piano, on a shelf, or another special spot.

On a board – Pin your cards up on a bulletin board decorated with red and green ribbon.

In a frame – Choose your favorite scenes and display them in a picture frame. This can be a beautiful decoration for years to come.

On a door – Some people like to tape their cards up on a door or maybe an open staircase railing. Just be sure to use tape or sticky putty that won’t destroy the finish.

On a hanger – Many stores carry some type of wire hanger that will help you show off your cards.

Once your ready to put the cards away, consider recycling them or donating the front of the card to a senior center, day care, church, or school. They can use them for crafts. Or, save them for your own crafts. You might create a collage suitable for framing, use them in a holiday shadow box, or make your own gift bags.
