DIY Christmas Craft #10

Ahhhh, Christmas cards! I must start by saying THANK YOU to those of you who take the time to write and send out your warm wishes. Every year I think about sending out cards, but alas, the thought is soon forgotten! Either way, I would like to suggest this craft to show off the thoughtfulness of those who do write and send out cards.

You will need:
  • two yards of festive ribbon
  • five feet of wooden dowel (specifically, one piece at 8", 10", 12", 14" and 16")
  • hot glue gun
Start by folding your ribbon in half (the folded end will be the top and the loose ends will be the bottom). With a hot glue gun, sandwich the dowels between the ribbon. Start to glue the shortest dowel about 6" from the fold of the ribbon (the top). Continue to glue the remainder of the dowels about 5" apart from each other, making sure to glue them in increasing length sequence ei: 8", 10", 12", 14" then 16" (at the bottom). 

Hang your Christmas card holder to your door or a wall. As your receive cards, just clip them onto the dowels using binder clips or simply hold punch a corner of the card and secure a loop of ribbon to hang.

PS, I'm curious, when you were growing up, where did mom hang all the Christmas cards?

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
