DIY Photo or Card Display

with the Blessings Cardholder

I get so many compliments of how I made this rustic photo display, I wanted to show you how easy it is to make with this DIY project! Look for my next blog post on the many uses this Blessings Cardholder has, especially as a photo display!

1. Purchase a Blessings Cardholder. It is on sale in July for only $22.

2. Purchase a board such as this one, and ask the store to cut it 37″. I got mine at Menards for about $4.  Also purchase some 2 1/2″ burlap ribbon. I got mine at Hobby Lobby for about $8.

3. Lay the burlap ribbon the length of the board and staple it down with 2 staples on the reverse side. Stretch it tight and staple the other end with 2 staples also, then cut to trim. Repeat this process again to cover the other half of the board. The front and back of your should look similar to these pictures.

4. Place the cardholder on top of the burlap board. The bottom has a notch that fits right around the board, and the top has a hanger to hang onto the wall (hanging hardware included with he cardholder). When the cardholder is hung onto the wall, the board will hold in place. To make pretty I added a jute bow at the top, but this is optional!

This DIY project using the Blessings Cardholder makes it look a bit more rustic and give is a vintage look.
