A great way to put your favorite holiday cards in the forefront. 
By using clothespins to attach the cards, it is reminiscent of clipping playing cards to your bike tires to make them noisy.  
This idea can be used as a photo display as well.

I bought an old tricycle over the weekend for $1.80 and dismantled it as much as I could.  This is the first use I have for it so far.

And I'm glad you'll can relate to the cards in the spokes idea! Good times...good times.

Take care,

I think on this project you could also use those little black stationary clips, if you have a larger wheel and want more cards on them. You could also hang the wheel like in my earlier project http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/460/tour-de-france-tricycle-wheel-sign. Thanks again, Candy!
