Easy DIY Holiday Card Display

For years I have been using this ribbon to display my holiday cards – I always keep it in the dining room of our home so that the cards can be enjoyed throughout the season.  It is fun to watch the photos and images of the holidays fill up the ribbon.  This is the year I will have to expand to a couple more ribbons, they were overflowing last year!  

This was an easy project to make.  I simply took a large white satin ribbon (it happens to be the sash from my wedding dress) and attached a red and white snowflake bow to the top.  I created the bow with wire-lined ribbon that I hot glued together out of two loops.  Then, I simply tape the cards onto the ribbon to display.  Each year I roll up the ribbon and store it away, hence the lovely wrinkles seen in the first photo.  
To attach them to the wall, I use these handy 3M sticky tabs.  They make it easier to remove the ribbons at the end of the season and prevent paint removal.  Happy decorating!
