How do you display the Christmas Cards that you receive?

Phew!  I finally got a day off from work.  This has been a very looong week. 

With what little time I had left before bed, I used to search the net for different ways to display Christmas cards.  Every year, we do the same thing.  We’ll drape the doorway with garland and hang the cards from the garland.  This year, I want something different.  Well, my search didn’t find me much, but I did think that this idea was cute:

Thanks for the idea!
