I’m pretty sure everyone in the world loves getting happy mail. I know I do, so I love when December comes around and people send their holiday cards.

Minted is far and away my favorite holiday card site — they have fantastic and unique designs (I love this floral one and everything in their foil collection), super high quality cards, and really good prices. Their turnaround is also super quick, which is very important during the holidays when you have a million other things on your plate.

Today I’ve teamed up with Minted to give away $250 to use on anything on their site (the giveaway is at the bottom of the post!), and I’m sharing two easy ways to display your holiday cards this year. I always just tape mine to the wall, but having them hung around the house like this is just so pretty and festive.

Here are our cards we’ve sent out over the last five years (we didn’t start sending them out until B was born)
Merrick's Art | Christmas Cards

Now for two easy ways to display them!

1. Use a sturdy ribbon and hang it across your fireplace, or just on a blank wall. Use mini clothespins to clip the cards to the ribbon.

I think it would look so pretty if you had five or six rows of ribbon, all with your hanging cards!

2. Hang vertical strings of ribbon over your mantel, or just in strands along a blank wall. Use clothespins to clip the pictures to the ribbon.

Again, this would look so pretty with a wall filled with rows of vertical strands.
