Looking for Christmas Card holders to make this year to make your home merry and bright? Then you may want to take a look at this ribbon Christmas card holder.
This Christmas card holder craft was fun to make and I love it better than my original one that I made using yarn you can see it below. I am a huge fan of getting Christmas cards in the mail, I love to collect them and I feel that they should be displayed and the best part is being able to see the changes from year to year.
- Christmas Cards
What I used:
- Offray Wired Ribbon – Red Size: 1 1/2 inch x 9 Ft – I used 4 rolls
- Letter Stencils
- Snowflake Stencils
- Glue Gun
- Glitter – Green, light blue, and white
- Cardstock – Very light grey
- Recollections card stock paper: Trucks and Trains – Green and light blue
Although the links above are Affiliate links these are the exact Stencils that I used except that I found mine a couple years back at a store.
- I counted how many cards I had and then tried to divide them up as evenly as I could into stacks.
- Now what I did was divide the cards by family, and then arranged them by alternating vertical and Horizontal in their piles.
- Then I figured out how many piles I had. Then I figured out that I had enough to make the Phrase “Let it snow” then I figured out how many snowflakes I needed. I used 8 large and 8 small.
- The next thing I did was taking the green card stock placing the stencil backwards on the paper (so that the pencil lines won’t show on the lettering) and traced out the letters. Then I cut them out.
- Then taking the Snowflake stencil and turning is backwards as well so that you don’t have pencil lines on the front side. Then cut those out also.
- Once they are all cut out I put a little bit of glue on them and lightly sprinkled glitter on each corresponding color.
- Then once they were dry I took the ribbon and left about maybe an inch at the top so and folded the edge.
- Then I laid out the letter, big and small snowflake on the ribbon. When I found that I liked it then I glued it down.
- Then I laid out the cards on the ribbon and as I got them in place I glued them down with the glue gun a dot at the top and bottom.
- left a couple inches on the bottom then folded it under.
- I did the previous steps for the remainder of them.
- I was going to use gold push pins to put them on the walls. but I hung them differently than I expected to.
Here is a bit of a close up from when I first finished them and hung them on the wall to see how they came out.
Now as the years go on and I receive more cards my plan is to just use the plain snowflakes and hang them around till it gets to be a bit much and then ill have to come up with something new.
