5 Creative Ways to Display Greeting Cards

Looking for clever ways to display your greeting cards at home? There are lots of really awesome ways to show off your cards from family and friends – check out these 5 creative ways to display greeting cards to get started!

As a greeting card writer and designer, I hate the idea of people throwing away my cards after the celebration is over. It makes me sad!

As a hoarder sentimental person, I tend to keep a lot of the cards given to me and my family, because I hate to throw those away, too!

I even have cards saved from my early childhood and my husband and my first Christmas together, our children’s birth’s and then some. However, I’ve always put these cards away with the storage or seasonal items, because I wasn’t sure what else to do with them.

But, I’ve since found Pinterest and all these really clever ways to display greeting cards that I never would have imagined!

Here’s just a few ideas to get started…

I know this shutter display is holding Instagram photos, but how cute would this be covered with greeting cards?

You could paint an old shutter red or green and use it for Christmas, or pastels for Easter. There are so many color variations to this one!

So, why don’t you stop throwing away all your cards and start displaying them instead? It’s a great way to decorate seasonally (and celebrationally – is that even a word?) without spending any extra money!
