DIY Card or Picture Holder

1

By: Goldie

Now that Holiday Season is in full swing I am sure that you’ve all got an enormous amount of cards poring in.  Running out of room on the mantel? We may have a solution for you; this project is quick and relatively inexpensive.  All you will need is; some ribbon, left over fabric, and a hot glue gun, and you’re in business. 

Materials:

  • Piece of foam cork, we cut ours down to 24” x 24”
  • 1 ½ yard of each ribbon you’d like to use
  •  Piece of fabric 2” larger than the measurement of your foam cork
  • Glue gun and glue sticks

 Directions:

  1. Cut foam cork down to desired size
  2. Place foam cork over top pressed fabric and center.  Starting on one side fold over 1” remaining fabric and hot glue to the back of cork.  I like to glue the corners over first at a 45 degree angle before the sides; I believe it makes the cleanest looking corners.
  3. Cut ribbon 2” longer than your board. Lay them out the way you desire.
  4. Fold ends towards the back and hot glue.  You may want to pull out a ruler to be sure you get them all nice and straight.
  5. Fill with your holiday cards or pictures and enjoy!

    Hey, I just saw my blog on your recommended blogs list! Thanks! You know how much I love M&J and mention it all the time on Lindsay T Sews. In fact, I will be there tomorrow looking for snazzy trim for a red satin strapless dress I’m making for my teenage daughter. I know we’ll find just the perfect thing, as always!
