I had grand plans of displaying them in a fun way on a blank wall near my office and then just ran out of time to put it together (maybe next year..). I used painters tape to hold the cards up and they’ve all stayed in place.
For fun we stuck one of our leftover cards from this year on the pantry door.
Love seeing those three faces smiling at me every time I walk in the pantry.
As the month went on and we started getting more cards I could tell I was going to have to use the door frame on the other side of the butler’s pantry. I took out some of the Christmas stuff, added a few heart shaped bowls and called it Valentine’s day decor.
I’ve loved having my cards displayed here because this is an area of our home we are in and out of so much of the day. Wonderful to be greeted by so many smiling faces I love on my way to grab some pretzels or cereal. :) Speaking of being in and out of the pantry all day – I caught a quick blurry shot of my little monkey trying to be sneaky.
His latest trick is to tip-toe into the pantry when he thinks I’m not looking and then get into the chocolate chips.
I thought I’d share what I do with my Christmas cards after I finally do take them down… in March. I chose a handful of cards for the year, cut the family pictures out, and create a very simple scrapbook/collage page.
Such a fun thing to have displayed on the coffee table every December for all of us to flip through!
