Here’s another easy way to dress up a plain message board. The idea belongs to Oksana Danailova from Blagoevgrad, a mother of three and a participant in our Christmas competition.

You need a message board and some thumbtacks, 3m of elastic cord, scissors, colored cardboard and some Christmas cards. The cardboard (white, blue, red or any Christmas color) must be measured and cut to cover the whole surface of the board. Cut up the elastic band into strips to make the snowflake and fix tightly with the thumbtacks. You are ready to display your cards.


Feel free to experiment with different shapes:
