Christmas Crafting: Card holder.

I have been in MAJOR need of a Christmas card holder for weeks now. I never found anything I liked in stores, so I called up Mackenzie & we decided to create something!

Our inspiration was this from Lauren at Dreams Take Flight.
Cute, right?!

So Saturday morning we gathered our canvases, paint, ribbon & got to work.
 I have terrible handwriting, so I painted & cut ribbon while Mac wrote... :)
 The finished product! We were pleased! :)

I BARELY fit all the cards on. Next year I'm going to have to add longer ribbon. 

Can't wait to get crafty with Mac again soon :)

Very cute idea! I had the same trouble with no where to put our cards either, so I decided to go with a Christmas Card Tree! I absolutely love it! :)
