Postcard Bunting

Hello everyone! And welcome to my new swapbot followers/friends. Thanks for stopping by! Here is my latest attempt at decorating on the cheap - or in this case: FREE!

So I've seen bunting all over the place lately, and came across some postcard bunting too (here and here, par example). It looked so easy I thought I'd rummage through my collection of cards and make one myself!

I like it! So easy too - I just used a regular hole punch on each of the top corners of the card and strung twine through. I used an extra long piece of twine so I can add more as I receive them - more postcard swaps are in my future, I do believe!

I guess I could flip it over for a more uniform, demure look but I like seeing the pictures. This would be a fun decoration for a bon voyage party if you're having one. Maybe I should have one!

  8. Hi Emma, I sure like this idea of the picture banner. I will have to try that as I have lots of lovely calendar pictures. I'm following your blog now. Would you follow mine?

  9. Thanks! A great way to display postcard swaps too pretty to put in a drawer.

  10. Thats is a creative thing to do with your postcards and cards. I just shoved mine into a book that is sadly very overflowed now.

  11. I'm hoping to get more and have it go all the way around the room! I found a stash I'd forgotten about and have added them on - so fun!
