Christmas Card Holder

My sister Julie and I are really clever, aren't we. I have been asked about how to make the card holder and where do i put it... here you go:

Yardstick: that doesn't have the name of a store written across it. Walmart has these in the sewing section for $1.72.
Paint: different colors of red and green. i also used a cream color too.
clothes pins: you can buy these at Walmart 50 for less than a $1. you will need 17-18 per yardstick.
Ribbon: We have a ton of ribbon...we scrapbook, but you can find it on sale right now just about everywhere. We used reds and greens and a few black and white. use as much as you like.
paper plate
fast drying tacky craft glue

Directions:

take a paper plate and clip all if your clothes pins to it. paint them and leave them on the plate to dry. you may need to paint a couple of coats on each.
when those are dry, glue them to the yardstick so that every other one faces the opposite direction every two inches. I recommend letting it dry for just a few minutes. Then, tie ribbon to the yardstick.

You have yourself a Christmas card holder.
I put it on the wall, hanging vertically, but you could go horizontally too.
