Christmas cards are a common sight in your mailbox during the holidays and using them to decorate your home is a natural response. The most common ways are placing cards along a fireplace mantel or hanging them on the wall in the shape of a Christmas tree. While these classic options look great in your home, you can do something different. This year, take your folded holiday cards and display them in a more unique way. Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Hanging Christmas cards from your ceiling frees up wall space for other decorations you may want to hang and adds some elegance to your decor. Consider some cross-crossed ribbons in festive colors that you can hang both streamers and cards from. If you still really want to make a tree out of your cards, try a few strings of varying length to hang a three-dimensional card tree from your ceiling.
Another hanging option for your Christmas cards is in the front windows of your home. If you already use dark curtains for privacy or because you have plenty of internal light sources, then you can completely plaster your window with cards and suffer no loss of light. However, if your windows are a main source of light for your front rooms, consider stringing a ribbon across the top sill and hanging a row of cards from that.
Show your appreciation of your family and friends by displaying the folded holiday cards they send you in the mail. Keep your favorites and display them year after year in unique ways to add a touch of creativity to your regular decor. Will the cards you send out rate such high treatment? Pick from our many custom options for Christmas and seasonal cards. Plus, pick up some address labels and postage stamps to match.
"Easy to create our Christmas card using this card layout. Perhaps just my unfamiliarity with the product but would have liked to have been able to put a text box on the front of the card in front of the pic. We got the glossy print this year (versus matte last year) and much prefer the glossy look. Overall, great product."
"Great card, with terrific quality and good adaptability on the inside. Terrific service, too--prompt, accurate, and friendly."
"I wanted a photo card that would include enough space for me to write a personal message that would go to our closest friends and family. I found that possibility after fielding a call to the staff at Tiny Prints. The folded 'Favorite Memory' Photo Card was perfect. My intended story was told beginning with a full cover photo, two photos and my 87 word message inside, ending with one photo on the back…A perfect fit! Comments coming back to me convey the joy that I felt as I went through the layout process. Many, many thanks for helping me give this 'gift' to the people I love."
"We were really pleased with how this card turned out. We liked the simplicity and the lack of graphics on the front worked well for our photo. We also liked the opportunity to put our own greeting on the inside. The quality of the paper and the printing make the card seem very high end. Overall we got exactly what we were looking for!"
"This was exactly what I was looking for--versatile, classic, and able to use so many pictures without doing the usual collage. I will most likely us this or something similar again and again. This was the year of a big family celebration so the front of my card has a photo of the 17 of us--3 generations. I was able to use 9 more pics from the party on the inside and back of the card. Loved that editors were available to spot any problems, and I was able to approve it before shipping. I am very pleased and have received great compliments already."
