[QUOTE=KWasser;464821] '' I guess you would have to punch holes in the cards though. But that would be a neat way to hang them on the wall then...''


You might not need to punch holes if you don't want. I either use string, ribbon or tinsel and staple across the wall first. Then I open each card and hang them over the string so the string or whatever runs in between the front and back of the card......don't know if that makes sense. It would mean that the cards are are hung horizontal instead of vertical but they still look good.

Also if you prefer you can use paper clips to attach the card to the string and that way you can have the string running across or downward. Here in the uk they do card clips especially for pinning cards. They are like mini clothes pins/pegs and you can get them in gold or silver. Maybe you can look for those but the paper clips are a great alternative to those.

LOL! Sorry for the loooong drawn out post just wanted to share incase it makes it easier for you......Hope you have fun doing it!!!

I buy some metallic colorful wrapping paper and wrap the door in my hallway then I put ribbon around the border and add all the new Christmas cards.

I also use past cards as name tags for the current year Christmas presents and will also cut some to use a decorations on my fridge or even some windows.

Some can be used to make small boxes for kids treats and etc.
