Can you believe how quickly December is flying by?! Before I knew it, Christmas cards started arriving in the mail and I realized I had nowhere to display them. In our small apartment, it can be difficult to find space, so I decided to utilize an existing frame on a table to make this DIY framed web card holder that would be easy to store away for next season or repurpose for other items.
A few years back, I posted an article highlighting 36 easy handmade Christmas cards. Little did we know that four years later, it would generate close to a quarter of a million views. The post's popularity told us that people are clamoring for easy and beautiful handmade Christmas card tutorials. It also told us that we needed to scrounge the internets for even MORE ideas. After doing just that, here's some for this holiday season.
