Make a Card Display with Ribbon

I come from a crafty family, so when someone asks me to make them something, I’m always honored and challenged.  My sister said: hey, Little Miss Ribbon…could you make me something to hang my Christmas cards on?  I, of course, jumped at the opportunity and came up with this Ribbon Card Display.

Match a ribbon with the same width as your wooden clothespins, and cut to the same length.  Use double sided tape to adhere to the pins.

Make small bows in a coordinating ribbon and attach to the clothespins with an adhesive dot.

Cut a wide ribbon the length that you wish your holder to be.  Use double sided tape to adhere a contrasting ribbon down the center. Form a ribbon loop and staple to the top of the long ribbon to form a hanger.

Make a paper rosette and hot glue to the top of the ribbon holder.  Decorate as desired.  Use the decorated clothes pins to attach your cards to display.
