Christmas Card Holder

Ever since we moved into our house (4 years ago), I've struggled with where to display our Christmas cards.  I tried decorating our china hutch (they fall down).  I tried stringing twine between two pictures in our dining room (ok, but not as pretty as I'd like). 

And then...In the summer of 2010, I saw this fantastic tea holder/wreath from the brilliant sister duo over at kojo designs.  I knew that it would make the best holder for our Christmas cards.  It's compact, yet displays all of the cards.  And it doesn't matter what shape the card is - they would all look great!

Oh and the best part - it's cheapity cheap cheap cheap.  Just heavy cardboard and a few pieces of scrapbook paper. 

Here it is ready for cards

Love this! This might be a last minute holiday project for me, it would be a great way to display our cards that are otherwise going to sit in a pile on our desk.
