How to make it

  1. Holiday Card Holder - Step 1

    Use a craft knife to cut the cardboard into 2 matching triangles with a 26-inch base and height. Cut the fleece into 2 triangles as well, one the same size as the cardboard triangles and the other about 2 inches longer on each side. Center the smaller piece of fleece on the larger one, then stack the cardboard triangles atop the fleece.

  2. Holiday Card Holder - Step 2

    Hot-glue the edges of the larger piece of fabric around the cardboard, folding the corners as shown.

  3. Holiday Card Holder - Step 3

    Turn over the cardboard and crisscross strips of ribbon across the front. Be sure to leave a few inches hanging over each side so you can glue them to the back.

  4. To secure the ribbons in place, slip a bead, followed by a sequin, onto a pin (one for each ribbon intersection), then push the pins through the front of the cardboard where the ribbons cross.

  5. Holiday Card Holder - Step 5

    Flip the board over again and use pliers to bend the end of each pin against the cardboard (a parent's job), then cover each pin with a square of duct tape. Now glue the ends of the ribbons to the back of the triangle, and let the glue dry completely.

  6. Holiday Card Holder - Step 6

    To display your card holder, lean it against a wall or staple a loop of ribbon to the back for a hanger.
