Top 10 Tuesday {13}: Creative Ways to Display Christmas Cards

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE getting Christmas cards in the mail. Maybe it’s because this is the one time of year when something FUN arrives via snail mail besides bills and junk mail. It could also just be that I love seeing the beautiful faces of our friends and family on cute Christmas cards :) My husband always makes fun of me because I get so excited to get the mail every day during the holiday. I really love it.

After I rip open the envelope and admire the beautiful card I can’t just  let it get lost in a sea of paper for the rest of the year. That’s no fun! Instead I always pick an open wall and create a collage with everyone’s photo cards so I can ‘ohh’ and ‘aww’ every day! It might not be the most creative way, but I AM creating some beautiful wall art with the pictures :)

If you are looking for some fun ways to display your holiday cards this year I’ve pulled together 10 Ways to Display Christmas Cards to start some inspiration.

1. Turn old shudders into a beautiful card holder from Love Sweet Love.
