Creative ways to display Christmas cards

Paper.  It is my worse nemesis.  I throw away the mail pretty much right away but magazines, lists, things that need to be dealt with, coupons, sales ads  – all those things that I don’t know what to do with or don’t have a specified place drive me crazy.  So let’s take some stress away from Christmas and find a place for all those creative photo cards and Christmas cards that you are going be getting in the mail.  And even better let’s turn the paper clutter into décor!

I usually use a card holder like this (I think I picked mine up at Goodwill and I see them there all the time).  I hang it over a door in our entryway.  It works but sometimes cards fall out and it isn’t the best display option.

I have really been wanting to do a ribbon display like this one or one over my kitchen cabinets – think I will try that this year!

And better yet, I think I might NEED this chalkboard wall in my house – how pretty is that!?

I also love this idea to make a book out of your cards and photo cards.  I think this would be a great idea to store your cards from year to year if you keep them or even to keep your own cards as sort of a Christmas photo card scrapbook.

Does the paper monster live at your house (and multiply overnight?) at your house too? 

How do you display your Christmas cards?  Did you find a new way to try this year?
