How To Display Christmas Cards ~ Display Christmas cards in a rectangular glass vase just like cut flowers adding to the Christmas decor!
How to display Christmas cards has always been a problem. I have always struggled with how to showcase all of the wonderful cards my family and I receive every year with messages of joy. If you go on Pinterest there are some great ideas for displaying them with most of them being to hang the cards on the wall in a decorative manner.
I have to admit that displaying them on the wall is not quite one of my favourite ideas for two reasons. Firstly, I don’t really have the wall space and the second reason is that I want to have the cards accessible so I can take some time to carefully read and enjoy every card when I have time and the ‘busy-ness’ of the season is well… not so busy. With each celebration my lovely mother-n-law would take some time to read and savour every card that she received and I thank her for modelling this truly special gesture.
Think of how cut flowers are showcased which is in a vase. Why not do the same with greeting cards?
How To Display Christmas Cards
I purchased a rectangular clear vase at Michaels and attached a plaid ribbon around the width and the length with clear tape. Then I made a label saying “Joyful greetings from…” which I taped onto the ribbon. I just made it on Word with the font ‘Edwardian Script’ and printed it off on cardstock white paper. Then I accented the label by creating a border with red glitter. Super easy and super quick to do!
That’s how to display Christmas cards!
Final Comments: This is a timely post for me because today is my birthday! It has been interesting having a birthday so close to Christmas for a number of reasons. My birthday has always been sandwiched or in conflict with other December activities and responsibilities. It has been a common occurrence to have to celebrate my special day at the same time as a Christmas concert, Christmas party or final exam. Oh well. I have to admit my family members and friends have always been pretty awesome at taking time to celebrate my special day in a special way. I am pretty lucky.
