Displaying Holiday Cards

One of my very favorite parts about the holiday is the cards!! I like sending cards, and I like receiving cards from our friends and family.

Last year, I started working on this project, and then I finished it up a few weeks ago. It comes from the "I Believe" Art to Heart book. If you've never seen Nancy's books, they are incredible. Her projects have such a great cozy yet modern style. I've made quite a few things from them, and I love them all!

Without further ado, here's my Christmas card holder:

The tree parts are actually pockets, and you can slide the cards into them.

I love this design!!

So you can see the pockets...

Before you feel sad that we haven't gotten any holiday cards yet, we have gotten a few since I took these pictures! BUT - not very many... so send me one!!
