We start by ironing the jute so that there are no ugly wrinkles in the fabric. Since jute is often quite thin, we fold the fabric in half. To make the folding extra tight you can use the iron on top of it.
Place the folded jute on the corkboard, or a flat piece of wood. Make sure that all edges of the corkboard are covered with jute. Then fasten the jute using a staple gun.
Then cut strips of ribbon that are slightly longer than the width of the sheet. For our plate of 18 by 24, we used four strips of ribbon.
In order to make the ribbon strips stand out well, we measure the spacing on the plate. To fix the ribbon in the right place you can put a few points with a marker.
Then fasten the ribbons by attaching them to the side or the back with the staple gun.
Basically, the board for the Christmas cards is now ready! The Christmas cards can be attached to the board by the ribbon. Hang a card over the ribbon, and attach another card by attaching it behind the ribbon.
Do you want to hang the Christmas card holder? Then of course you can! You can attach a hanging system to the back of the holder, so that the Christmas card holder can also be hung.
