Postcards – Valentine’s Day Part 2/Displaying your postcards

I love to display holiday themed antique postcards when I have a chance. Below is a step by step tutorial on how I accomplished this and provided a bit of protection for the cards at the same time.

The only equipment needed is fancy-edged scissors, small straight-edged scissors, construction paper and postcards.

Lay your postcards out on different colored construction paper to help you decide how to best arrange them. Three postcards fit on a piece of standard construction paper.

If you have fancy scissors cut a pattern very close to the edge so that you don’t lose too much of the paper.

Cut the construction paper to about a 6 1/2 to 7 inch height. Tri-fold this rectangle and then cut small snips on the diagonal to hold your cards. You might need to make a few trial runs of this to get the placement correct.

Carefully slip the corners of your postcards into the diagonal slits. Displaying the postcards like this lessens the wear and tear the edges and corners might receive. Remember to keep them out of direct light.

Display your creations all over your house.
