The Christmas cards will start rolling in at any time! Are you ready for them? Where do you keep them?  Do you display your Christmas cards?

I'm using a vintage children's book to create a great place to hold Holiday cards.

This is also a great way to recycle old books that have been discarded from the library.

There never seems to be enough space to hang Christmas cards in my house.

I've seen tons of great ideas on the internet but they all take up a lot of room.


This one has enough spaces in it to hold plenty of Christmas cards and it can sit on the coffee table so everyone can enjoy the cards.

I started this project with a piece of stained wood.

I glued the folded book to the wood then added metal trim detail from another project to the sides. 

Here's another way you can decorate your folded book display. 

I also use one to organize coupons and small notes.

Folding the book pages is a great mindless project to do while watching TV at night.

Here are a few more recycled book ideas for you!

Here are more recycled folded book ideas I made a while back.

This would make a great hostess gift! 

They were a super hot seller at all my craft fairs!

Sorry but I'm keeping this one... it is beginning to fill up with beautiful cards from friends on my own coffee table!
