DIY: Christmas Card Display

Welcome back to the 12 Days of Christmas!  Today I’m going to share a quick and easy craft with you because if you’re anything like me you might not have a lot of time to complete a complicated craft project this time of year!  I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely loving seeing all of these different projects and ideas from so many different bloggers.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the first two posts, go and do that now!

One of the things I look forward to the most about December is the Christmas cards that arrive in my mailbox.  Beginning around Thanksgiving I actually get excited to check my mail and see if I received any Christmas cards.  I save my cards from year to year but realized there wasn’t really a good way to go back and look through old Christmas cards…and so I created these Christmas Card Displays!

Supplies Needed:

Cardstock…I used red and green but you can use whatever holiday colors you’d like

Hole Punch

1-inch rings…if you get a LOT of cards each year then you might want a bigger ring but 1-inch should work for most people

 Directions:

1. Print out title pages for each year.  You can do this very easily be creating a Word document that says “Christmas ####” on half of the sheet.  I chose to alternate every year red and green but you can do it however you’d like.

2. Cut the cardstock in half so you have a cover and a back.

3. Put all of the Christmas cards in a pile so you can hole punch them all at once.  This helps make sure everything lines up evenly.  I sorted my cards based on categories…family, work friends, friends, etc.

4. Once you’ve punched two holes you simply need to bind them all together with the rings and you’re set!

Now that I have these I love being able to look through them at Christmas time and see how my friends and family have grown and changed over the years!

 

Do you send Christmas cards?  Do you make them yourself or buy store-bought ones?

  1. Great idea! I get lots of questions about storing holiday cards. This keeps them in a nice, compact, viewable format. I have to admit I don’t hold onto cards from previous years, but this would work even for the current year’s cards:)

    1. It took me a long time to figure out what to do with them…but I’m so glad I did because they’re fun to look at!
