The best part…it is easy to win!

You will need to go to each design team members’ blog to get details of their projects, collect 1 red letter on each blog, and leave a comment. When you have finIshed looking at them all, Maya is the last stop, collect her 1 red letter and figure out what Christmas word we have scrambled and comment the answer on Maya’s post.  Here are the design teams’ blog links:

My Magnolia-licious Blog Hop project is a box to hold and display Christmas cards.  One year, I started taping all our Christmas cards on the door frame between the kitchen and family room.  When I took them down 6 weeks later, the tape took the paint with it!  Oh gosh, it was a mess.  Since then, I have collected all the cards in a bag and kept them to look through.  My dear friend Kim made a similar box to display a calendar each month.  I took the idea from her and here it is!

I got a plain wood box from Hobby Lobby and decorated it with items from Hobby Lobby: miscellaneous paper, pearl trim, Tim Holtz hardware and pearls, and Foamiran flowers.  Shawn has some Foamiran Flower Kits and individual sheets of Foamiran at Magnolia-licious.  The cards were spotlighted in our challenge but are made with mini Tildas.  Shawn has a great selection of mini Tildas.  I love them because they are small, quick to color, and put together.

I hope you enjoyed our Blog Hop and my Christmas card holder and display.  Have an amazing weekend and craft on!

    • Thank you Danielle! I was thinking of doing another box or even a few more boxes that were not Christmasy looking and using those for birthday or other cards that you get throughout the year. I have years and years of cards just sitting in a big box. I hate ever throw them away because they’re such sweet memories.
