By now, your mailboxes and front hall tables are probably piled high with Christmas cards. If you don't have a fireplace mantel or console to display them on, check out this neat idea from Emma Reddington over at The Marion House Book. She used corkboard, fabric, tape, paint and ribbon to create this striped board for cards and holiday artifacts. I love the preppy stripe pattern and fun colour scheme.
Not all these stripes were created with ribbon — some are actually painted on. Visit The Marion House Book for complete instructions.
