I’ve always struggled with a way to display all the Christmas cards we get each year. For several years, I taped them over the entry way to our living room. They fell constantly. Annoying. Last year, I put them all in a basket in the living room and promptly forgot about them.
I was determined this year to make a card holder that I could hang on the wall in our kitchen. I saw the Kate Spain holiday fabric line and fell in love. She had a small quilt panel I snatched up and my card holder idea was hatched.
The squares are a one-piece quilt panel. I had to add on the coordinating red fabric to the bottom to make some pockets to hold all our Christmas cards. I added batting, the same red fabric for the back, and quilted around each square. I added a dowel at the top and ribbon to hang it from a nail in the wall. 1 hour project!
I really love it! Now I have something I can use year after year and hand down to my daughter for her own home. Definitely worth the work.
Tomorrow, I’ll show you how to dress up a jar of homemade preserves that will make you the envy of all your friends and family. Til then,
