Christmas Card Holder

I received my first holiday greeting card the other day.  Aren't my in-laws cute! They are so photogenic.  Anyway.  This is a great Christmas card holder.  Here is what you need:

1.  A piece of sheet metal.  I got mine at Home Depot.  They even cut the metal in half.  My husband drilled the hole in the top for the ribbon.
2.  12-20 wood clothes pins mod podged with your choice of paper.
3.  Strong magnets.  The ones at Walmart won't hold your card.  I bought mine at Hobby Lobby.  The stronger the better.
4.  Hot glue.
5.  Ribbon.

That's that.  I like the magnet idea because after the holidays I can still use the clothes pin magnets on my fridge.

Oh, BTW, can I please buy a taggie blanket from you (just the small square one with crinkle inside). I'll pay you full price! I think Grace would love it for Christmas!

Very cute! I can't believe you're getting Christmas cards already though!

We have really enjoyed your blog and all the cute projects. You inspired Ashley and I to make the Christmas card holder while I was in Oregon for Thanksgiving. Keep up the great crafts.
