Ribbon Christmas Card Holder

Posted By Heidi Pepin on Nov 27, 2007 at 8:31AM

I don't know about you all, but my anal-retentive organized self has already mailed out the majority of her Christmas and holiday cards and now I'm just waiting for them to pour in. Until Thanksgiving, I had nothing to put them in (my grandfather made me a card holding sleigh), so I was seriously considering making one of these Ribbon Card Holders. They look adorable and I can think of a dozen places that I could hang it from off the top of my head.

So if you're struggling to find a place to put all those cards, this might be the perfect idea!

This beautiful garland will add just that touch of fall this November. Heres how you can achieve this look in your home!

Tools and Materials
Medium-weight cardboard stock
Approximately 40 dried magnolia leaves for each section of the garland
22-gauge floral wire
Small paintbrush
Water-based glue
Gold mica
Gilding brush
Satin ribbon

Magnolia Garland How-To
1. To create the cardboard base for the leaves, photocopy the template below, increasing the size by 200 percent. Cut out each piece along dotted line and enlarge by 200 percent; repeat.

2. For each garland section, trace the shapes on cardboard stock. Cut out pieces, and punch a small hole at either end with a nail. Link pieces with double rings of floral wire to form the curved shape.

2. For each garland section, trace the shapes on cardboard stock. Cut out pieces, and punch a small hole at either end with a nail. Link pieces with double rings of floral wire to form the curved shape.

3. With brush, apply glue to top of each leaf, then dust on gold mica with the gilding brush. (Always wear a dust mask when working with mica powder.) Shake off excess and let dry completely.

4. Affix leaves to cardboard with hot glue in an overlapping pattern, alternating one mica side up, one unpainted side up. Attach to staircase using satin ribbon tied in a simple knot.

Decorate your mirrors this Holiday Season!

Posted By Hollywoodjess on Nov 4, 2007 at 9:54AM

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is hang wreath's on mirrors because I think it looks so pretty!

Here is a picture of one wreath, granted it is more "Christmas-y" but you can also go to your craft stores and find fall accented ones. But I think red berries still go with thanksgiving and would look just fine. I think they add a bit of color amongst the yellows,oranges and browns.

If you want to know how to make this exact one here is the link with how-to instructions! Have fun!
