12 Days Christmas Card

I know Christmas was 2 weeks ago, but with all the hustle and bustle during last month I haven’t had a chance to share a project I worked on for my cousin. She came up with a fun way to share their year with a “12 Days of Christmas” card. I had so much fun creating this for her and loved the way it turned out! I’m thrilled she asked me to do this for her and her husband and was even more excited about it when I got it in the mail. Thanks Devon!

DIY Christmas Card Holder

IMG_3333So, after going through my Friday Favorites post last week on Christmas Card Holders, I figured out what I wanted to do. I created something super easy, budget friendly and cute! The thing that I love most about this Christmas Card Holder is that you don’t have to build anything and it only takes 10-15 to put together. Here is what you’re going to need:

Ribbon (Christmas Themed of course!)

Hemp (or some sort of sturdy string)

Clothespins

Thumbtack

Cut pieces of ribbon and tie a bow around the front of the clothespin on the top (do not tie it around both ends).

Create as many bows onto clothespins as you need. Hang up the string on the wall and start pinning those cards!

I’m also super excited to share one of my projects I was working on a couple weeks ago for my husband’s cousin. She had her adorable baby in October and asked me to help her with the baby announcement. She came to me with the idea and I just helped her create the card attached to the picture. I love the wording she came up with for this Christmas Card/Birth Announcement. I’m so happy with the way it turned out and thrilled that I was able to help create her vision!
