Open up an embroidery hoop. Any size will do, but the larger the hoop, the more cards you can display. Lay a fabric of your choice (You could also use a dish towel!) over the inside hoop (Image 1). Cut ribbon and arrange in a grid pattern, ensuring that it overhangs the edge of the hoop (Image 2). Place the outer hoop on top of the fabric and ribbon (Image 3). Screw the embroidery hoop tightly in place (Image 4). Trim any extra fabric and ribbon. Sew an “X” at each point that the ribbon crosses, tying off thread on the back (Image 5). Tuck cards behind the ribbon lines to display them.
