Hanging your holiday cards is a great way to decorate for the season, but if you have a lot, they can look cluttered or messy. This method is a clean, simple way to keep your cards where you can see them without adding clutter, and all you need is a wide cloth or paper ribbon.

All you’ll need is some wide ribbon and some glue, or glue dots. Cut each length of ribbon about 30cm longer than the vertical surface you want to hang the cards from (in this case, they used kitchen cabinet doors) and place a glue dot every few centimetres along the back of the ribbon. Attach the ribbon vertically to the door, with the ends of the ribbon wrapping around the top. Hang your cards on the front of the ribbon using glue dots and your display is complete.

If you don’t want to display your cards in the kitchen, just duplicate the process for a stretch of wall, an odd corner or another part of the house, and put a card at the top and bottom to cover any trailing ribbon.
