I’m so late with getting my Christmas decor put away this year.  I’ve taken a few Christmas items down and typically one of the first things to go is the pile of Christmas cards.  

I LOVE getting them in the mail, but they take up tons of space and eventually they are just thrown away after Christmas ends.  But not anymore!  Don’t get rid of your Christmas cards, turn them into a Memorable Christmas Card Display Bundle!

What supplies do I need to make a yearly Christmas Card Punched Bundle?

How do I bundle my old Christmas Cards to keep for later?

This simple project took moments and I’m already excited for next year’s round of cards so I can add them to the mix and set them out to be on display.

I used a single hole punch, a decorative ribbon embellishment, a gorgeous brass keychain ring… and a monster pile of Christmas cards!

I punched two holes directly beside each other since my decorative ribbon was a little wide, but typically one hole should do the job just fine.

Once all my cards were punched, I joined with the keychain and added some pretty ribbon and embellishments.

You can also add a yearly tag to the top so you can remember these were all the cards from 2015, 2016, 2017, etc….  I recently saw someone hang each year’s bundles of Christmas and Holiday cards on a wall hook.  It looked so pretty!

There is something about having the cards down and easily accessible, even my kids have enjoyed going through them all again!

      Ah, great! So glad to help Frances.

  2. Such a great idea! I have our stack next to my daughters bed and planned for us to take one out each night and say a prayer for the special family that sent us the card. I thought it would be especially nice since we live far from so many family and friends. This is the perfect way for me to organize and keep the stack straight. Thanks!
