{new} christmas card holder

i used to have a christmas card holder from target.
it was super cute, the shape of a tree with swirly wires that you put the cards in. but, it was never big enough and the cards would always fall out.

so last year i made one out of a frame using twine & glitter covered clothespins. 
it was super cute, but again not enough space.

this year i knew i needed to either get more frames or do something different.
and then, one day i was on pinterest and saw the cutest door all decorated for christmas with their christmas cards. so, i hopped over to her blog and loved it, but don't have a door to wrap.
well. except for the creepy door to the old water heater closet, but i won't open it because it gives me the willies.

so instead, i had the idea to wrap my kitchen cabinets with red yarn and hang my cards from them.
i love it.
love love love it.

i love that i get to see the cards all the time, and that my boy asks about the families on the photos. we only have a few right now, but i can't wait till they are all full of our wonderful friends and family!
it was super easy and extremely inexpensive!

and in other news i've been baking and making treats like a crazy lady who needs a sugar fix.
i won't lie that like most good bakers i've been sampling my own creations. it's for the good of those i'm gifting them to. i truly wouldn't be a good friend if i didn't eat one or five of the cookies i made.

my pinterest 'yummo' board has really been useful. man, i love that site.
anywho. linking up to a few great blogs. have a good weekend!!

  1. This is SUCH a cute idea!! I also use glitter clothespins, but I have them hanging from ribbon across one of our windows, I think I need to wrap my cabinets also, so fun!

  2. Genius. We have a 3-tiered Christmas card holder/box and it's not my favorite because you can only see the first card on each tier. I might have to copy this. Thanks for linking up!!

  3. So clever! I'd love for you to share this or any of your great ideas at the link party going on now (and every Saturday - Tuesday) at 'Or so she says ...' Hope to see you there!
