One idea that I got this year was to hang up the cards we've been getting from others, and I really like how easy it was and how it looks! I just used some twine, tape, and paperclips--all things from around the house!
|It now has a lot more cards on it :)|
|B's captain is actually the one responsible for bringing this gift. He even used a Victoria's Secret bag to wrap it in. Classy, huh?|
|This took less than 5 minutes to saw down.|
|The branches at the top were too thin to support anything even remotely heavy.|
|Maybe I'll buy a real tree skirt in the after-Christmas sales.|
The back was my favorite part!
Okay, to tell the truth we had more than one set of cards because I won 50 free cards from Tiny Prints (the ones above), but their price per card was just too high to buy the extras I needed from there. (For the others, I found an amazing deal at cardstore.com that included postage and will definitely be using them more in the future if they run stuff like that again! I actually paid less than the price of the stamp per card, honestly, and the cards came out pretty nice too.)
Check back tomorrow for some holiday tunes and to see what I got from my milspouse secret santa blog swap!
