"M" is for Mail

Every day now the kids look forward to getting the mail with great anticipation to see if there are any Christmas cards.

For the kids only the photo cards really matter, so far we only have a few but they have been coming steadily.  

This year I wanted to display them for the kids to see so I made this super easy and inexpensive card holder.  

Here are the supplies I started with:

- 1 1/2 yards upholstery webbing
- medium binder clip
- 6" floral wire
- ribbon
- raffia
- greenery
- paper covered clothespins ("C" is for Clothespins post if you want to see how I made those)

Clip the binder onto one end of webbing and make your bow with the ribbon and raffia using the wire to secure it in the middle (make it big enough to hide the binder):

See the wire in the middle with some left over to twist through the binder:

Hang the webbing:

Add the bow through the binder clip using the wire and arrange to cover the clip then stick in some greenery:

All set now add your cards (for us only photo cards will make the cut) using clothespins:

Hopefully in a few days we'll have the webbing all filled up.

I'm linking up with Centsational Girl's Holiday Home party:

What a great idea! I like that it's kid-proof too.
