I'm going to hang mine on string.

Imagine hanging them on a clothes line and you'll get the idea .

Mine will be hanging the same way this year. I bought some at the dollar store. It looks like a clothes line with little clothes pins. On each pin is a Christmas picture.

I had taped all of mine around the chair rail in my kitchen because I didn't want to use tacks and they all fell down! So they are all in a pile on my counter as well.

We have card holders made from cardboard - they have slots cut into them and you slot the cards in. Good because they hold cards of all sizes, look nice (lots of different designs) and don't take up any room (attach them to doors, walls, etc).

Same idea as these (not my photos):

I take some pretty Christmas wrapping paper and I cover my door that goes up to the attic. I use to do the entire door but now I just do half of it. Then I tape my cards on it as I get them. It's easy for people to see them and I enjoy looking at them. Sometimes I take ribbon and outline the edges of the paper, kinda looks like a package when I'm done.

I also have in the past arranged them on the door in a Christmas Tree pattern, that's kinda neat.

Last year, for my wife, I decorated two mini wreaths (8 inch) and attached one long strip (one is about 3 ft. the other is about 4 ft.) of wire edged holiday ribbon to each. Where the ribbon affixes to the wreath, I mounted an appropriately sized bow. We have ours hung on the wall in a staggered display (wreath edges are about 4 - 5 inches apart and the longer one is up higher than the shorter one).... then we simply clip our cards to the ribbons. The wire edges really help keep the ribbon straight with all the cards hanging on them. - Merry Christmas!
