punch cards. Unlike that wreath, the cards were used
(punched). The punch holes gave a more lacey effect. It
was about 18 inches tall. I think my grandmother made it.
It was the holiday centerpiece at our house for a number
of years. It was damaged in a move and discarded before
I got into computers as a young teenager. I wish I had it
