And since that beautiful vellum wrap is covering Kole’s head, this is a better look at our family picture this year.
Now for a fun idea of what to do with your own past Christmas cards. Last December when Sarah from Clover Lane posted this idea of how to create a photo garland I was thrilled! I have a Christmas album that includes our past Christmas cards, but loved the idea of also having them displayed in my home each December. Plus it was such a cute way to decorate the stairway banister. My friend Ann and I were simply giddy about this! We talked about it several times throughout the year and couldn’t wait to do something similar with our cards.
So here is my version! I decided not to use just the family picture like Sarah did even though I LOVE the way she displays her cards. Because I’ve made a lot of my past Christmas cards I wanted to see the whole card, including what I wrote about our family for each particular year.
It was so simple. I just punched a tiny hole in the top corner of each card…
Then I tied the ribbon in a bow and hung it on the garland going up my stairs.
I hung each card a little different because I wanted to be able to open the card and read the inside. This card I pulled the ribbon through the front of the card on the left side, but only through the back of the card on the right side.
I love this Christmas card photo garland! It has been so much fun having my cards displayed this way. Everyone who stops by my house enjoys looking at them and so do my girls. Such a fun way to see how our family has grown and changed.
