Are you one of those people who would already put up their Christmas tree in November if it was socially accepted? Well, I am! I even make an entire decoration plan for the Holidays. This year, I created this fun Santa card holder to display all the greeting cards that will (hopefully) fill my mailbox in the next couple of weeks.
What you need
- Piece of oilcloth – approx. 120 x 30 cm
- Set of mini clothespins to attach your cards
- Cotton border or ribbon, to hold the clothespins
- Black and white fabric or oilcloth, white cotton wool, to make the Santa’s feet, face and beard.
Of course, you can leave these parts behind if you want a multi-purpose greeting card holder that is suited for birthdays and other occasions as well!
- Sewing machine or stapler
What to do
- Cut the oilcloth in the desired shape. I just made a plain rectangle for the Santa’s body.
- Use your sewing machine or stapler to attach the pieces of border or ribbon from left to right. Every line should be approximately 10 cm apart, to make enough space for the cards.
- If you are going all the way on the Christmas theme (like me 😉 ), make the Santa’s head and feet.
- Put up your clothespins.
- Display your Christmas cards!
Isn’t the Lollipop red design great for Christmas decoration? Red, white, snowflake-like pattern… I just love it!
