Christmas Crafts: Card Hanger

It’s the 3rd day after Thanksgiving, and I’m ready for the glitz of preparing for Christmas!  In my house it’s time for huge, plastic boxes to come out of storage and their contents be put on display. Snowmen and gingerbread boys are placed on the mantle, miniature trees all decked out adorn the bar, and lights and garland get draped above every doorway and window.  As far as senses are concerned, I’m highly visual. So this, my friends, is eye-candy heaven!

As my family works to position yuletide wall hangings and set up train tracks around the tree, the world takes on a different view in my mind.  It’s as though I wear blinders to what could be a stressful time of year.  Along with the lights, color, and twinkle of the season, I choose to see what matters most: people.  The faces of family and friends, their mouths turned up into smiles and laughter, fill my heart with warm fuzzies that seem to stretch all the way to my fingertips!

I long for the welcome sign of the mail truck every day as I wonder who might be sending us a greeting from near or far.  One of my favorite activities leading up to December 25th is displaying Christmas cards we receive.  Setting them on a counter or bookcase just doesn’t do them justice in my opinion, so I hang the cards.  They look so festive that way, don’t you think?

There are a myriad of ways to do this from attaching them onto ribbon to letting each one dangle individually. I found a ton of photos on Pinterest, one of my guilty pleasures and an easy way to lose one’s self online.  The creative ideas I’ve seen there are simply endless!  Here is one of my favorite card hanging suggestions from Dinks:

This is another one of my faves from Tater Tots and Jello.  I think I’ll make this next week with the kids…

How do you display your cards?  Do you hang them up or set them out or mount them in some other way?  Do you put traditional boxed cards in one location and photo cards in another spot?

Speaking of photo cards, have you ordered yours yet? I have yet to order mine. You too?  Well don’t lose heart…there’s still time!  This year I’m falling in love with the photo cards from Tiny Prints. There are so many choices {and I am so very decision-making challenged}, but I think I’ve narrowed it down to a handful.  I love the colors of this one and the many photo window options…

This one looks like a postcard! How cute is that?!

Okay, this photo card is too adorable, already in “ready-to-hang” ornament form. Perfect to hang right on your Christmas tree!

Let’s not forget there’s also an option to design your own card.  Simply select the card color, layout, fonts, and embellishments and you’re good to go!

Right now Tiny Prints is offering 15%-20% off your orders with code CYBER20 until 11/29!!  And even if you order from Tiny Prints after that date {like me, Miss Undecided} you’ll still gain a gorgeous set ofChristmas photo cards.

Hey, when you get your photocards, would you please send me a link? I’d love to see them!!


Disclosure: In exchange for this honest review, Tiny Prints has offered to give me my own set ofChristmas photo cards.  Their offer does not in any way affect my opinion. {I still think their photo cards rock!} If you’re curious, please feel free to read my full Disclosure Policy here.
