About This Class

We love sending and receiving greeting cards at Christmas time but don't always have a nice way to display those cards, especially the flat photo cards we receive.

In this class we'll show you how to make a simple, yet super-handy display for those all those cards and photos you'll receive this holiday season! Specifically we'll show you:

  • several options for the frame itself
  • how to make an inexpensive frame using wood baseboard trim;
  • how to attach ribbon upon which your cards will hang; and
  • ideas for displaying it all!

You'll receive a handy printable Project Guide with measurements if you're creating your own frame. 

This project originally appeared on our blog Sustain My Craft Habit and is one piece of our larger holiday mantel. We invite you to visit and sign up to join our community where members receive free goodies each month including beautiful floral greeting card templates.
