Christmas Card Tree

I took some ribbon, command strips, clothes pins and cute little lazer cutouts and made myself a cute Christmas card tree!
I love to display our Christmas cards, but wanted to do it in a more decorative, creative way this year.
I knew I wanted to put our cards on this big, blank wall in my family room.
I would have to have them hanging there in some sort of cute way, because hello, it's in my family room! I thought I would hang them off of bakers twine or something. I think that led to ribbon, which led me to my stash. I got out some green ribbon, which made me think of a tree, and decided I would hang these cards in the shape of a tree! It would be our little Christmas Card Tree! Did you like riding on my train of thought?
I used command strips, which I use for so many, many things this time of year! I started in the middle of my tree and eyeballed the width, keeping in mind that it would get larger at the bottom. I tied my green ribbon to the little clear plastic and created the shape of a tree!
I had a few little Christmas clothes pins that I got in UT this summer. (I totally went to this warehouse sale which was crazy huge, had sooo much stuff, I was in heaven, none of my sisters were, but they indulged me!) Anyway, I only have 6 of them! I love the idea of hanging cards with these cute little pins and I, of course have supplies to make some of my own, so that is what I did.
It was super easy! I used mini clothes pins (Michaels), wooden tree shapes... that I also got at that warehouse sale (Studio Calico), markers (Stampin Up) and hot glue.
What I love about all things wood veneer is that you don't have to paint them! You can just color them! I got out my markers and colored my trees, brights, because they will go in my family room. Then, all I did was glue them to those mini clothes pins. Easy peasy!
Aren't they cute!? Now I have a good supply to hang all of my lovely Christmas cards with! On to the hanging of the cards...
You just clip the card to the ribbon, easy as that.
I love watching our tree fill in and can't wait to see what it looks like in a few weeks!
