Wreath Card Holder

My mom has always had trouble finding somewhere to put all of the Christmas cards, so when I saw this wreath I knew it would be a perfect addition to our home during the holidays. 

Price: >$5
Time: 1-2 Hours (Depending on Creativity) 
Level: Easy (Trace, Cut, Glue, Done)
Mess: Nothing Major, just a little glue and paper scrap
List: Cardboard
        Large Circle to Trace
        Scissors or Shears  
        Watered Down Glue
        Brush to Spread Glue
        Tissue Paper
        Clothes Pins
        Additional Decorations

The Steps:
1. Trace large circle onto cardboard, I used the top of a Tupperware container. 
2. Cut along your line. I used hefty shears. 
3. Admire your circle.
4. Get your watered down glue ready. More glue than water and shake shake shake. 
5. Squeeze glue on cardboard circle. 
6. Spread out the glue...
7. ...evenly.
8. Using tissue paper of choice lay it down on the glue and attempt to get the wrinkles out. 
9. Tape the tissue paper against the back so you do not have a raw edge on the sides. 
10. You will probably have to cut slits so it lays flatter. 
11. Make sure nothing is sticking up. 
12. Poke a hole and tie a string through it to hang it up with. 
13. Hot glue decorations and snowfakes or clothespins to hold the cards. 
14. Another example with clothes pins I made, I crinkled the paper too.
