In the previous post, I shared a photo challenge with you.
Last week, I had fun transforming some of my images into postcards.
It was an easy and fun project.
*White poster board / card stock (not the shiny kind)
*Good 'ol Elmer's glue
That's all, folks!
Trace your photo onto the card stock.
Cut the traced area out.
Glue the edges of your photo.
Stick it to the card stock.
Trim around the edges if needed.
Place a piece of washi tape in the middle of the card stock.
(This separates the address part from the message part,
and will add a little extra "fun!" to it, too.)
Easy, peasy, right?
I used to make postcards like this for my great grandma all the time.
It's a fun little project.
Here's the backside of my postcard.
My message is written with the purple marker.
The address is underneath my Sharpie.
I used my typerwriter and a label to write details about the postcard.
(Excuse the black dots- I didn't want to share our exact location online)
I found a cute, "new to me" stamp at a thrift store,
and wanted to use it, so I stamped it on, too.
It added some extra fun color.
The front of the postcard looked like this:
Alrighty, are you ready for some REALLY exciting news?!
Ya'll (should) know that I have a favorite thrift store.
It's pretty much impossible not to find a treasure there.
And, best of all- you "pay by weight."
So, if you find something that's really light....
Like, maybe... this:
It really doesn't cost much at all.
Well, Mr. Mustard Seed found a bunch of these postage stamps for me.
All unused and all awesome!
And, every sheet had different images on it, too!
Altogether, he found $20 worth of postage stamps,
and paid about 5 cents for them.
Now that's what you call a thrift store SCORE!
