Christmas Craft: Christmas Card Holder


This article was originally designed as a photograph frame for traveling with two pockets to hold treasured photos. It would easily be folded-up and carried in a trunk. Today this design can be adapted to make a one-of-a-kind Christmas card holder simply by adding a few additional panels with pockets. Simply fill with holiday cards and hang for all to see. Furthermore this piece, filled with a collection of 19th century photographs, would make a pleasing addition to a bare wall in a Victorian decorated room.  

 
Christmas Card Holder
 

Directions:
The panels with heart-shaped pockets are in flame-red plush. Each pocket is embroidered with sky blue silk and then framed with gold tinsel lace and an edging of mixed red chenille. A deep chenille fringe hangs at the bottom edge. This frame is hung to the wall by the two top loops.

From Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine, 1891.
