Tomato Cage Card Holder

Does anyone else have the problem of where to put all of your cards that you receive during the holidays? I know I do! I hate to just set them aside in a sad stack somewhere. Some of the cards are so beautiful and some of the cards are pictures of family and friends that I want to actually see! And shouldn’t the way you display your beautiful cards actually be just as cute???
This is what I came up with…..
I took a tomato cage, painted it red, and spruced it up a bit!
I used burlap for the bottom and top and then added some red ruffle! Love ruffles!!!
I tied festive ribbon all over and then added some clothes pins (this is what keeps the cards attached) decorated with the same ribbons.
Here it is with some cards added!
Aren’t those cards great? I made them on Saturday in a card making marathon hosted by a friend that is a Stampin Up consultant! It was a LOT of fun!
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I do! Here’s to my first Christmas craft of the season!!!!
