  • Displaying postcards

    I collect postcards that friends have sent me from their vacations and I want to be able to display them in my room in some way, but I don't want to tape them to paper or tape them to the wall.
    Any suggestions?

    They have those boards that you can buy. Memory boards I think they are called. Its a board with the fabric on it, and then there is ribbon criss crossing all over where you can stick things into. That way you arent putting holes or tape on/in whatever you want to show off.

      That is what I do.
      Also, if you have a few that are extra pretty or are favorites, you could frame them and hang them up that way.

          If you have a lot consider buying a poster size frame and do a collage with them.

            Cool idea!

            To live would be an awfully big adventure.

              I use picture frames with 4x6 openings, for how ever many I want to display together -- anywhere from 3 to 16. You can mount with tape or those old-fashioned photo or postage stamp corner mounts.

                I once did a collage in a big picture frame.

                All great ideas!

                and the stars come out,
                I'll look up on her behalf.
                I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                  I might do that, but i'd have to find one that won't make a hole in my wall or that won't peel the paint off my wall with the poster tape. My dad's mad enough as it is about the number of holes in my walls and if he sees any others, he'll flip.

                  Only problem is that I lack the creativity gene to anything like a collage. I tried before it it didn't look too great.

                  But if I wanted to display them and still be able to turn them over to read what's on the back, it would be hard.

                  I had seen somewhere once upon a time in a catalogue, a postcard holder. It looked like a giant shower curtain with slots for big and small postcards. But my mom threw it out, not knowing I had something marked in it.

                      Re: Displaying postcards

                      I have a HUGE collection of Disney postcards. I have framed some of my favorites in ready made frames with the right size matting. These are easy to come by at Target or Aaron Brothers (or just about anywhere). I will often change out the postcards when I want a new "gallery show".

                      The rest are kept in small Disneyland snapshot albums. These are loose leaf albums with plastic sleeves that are the perfect size for postcards. I organize them by Land.

                        What you need is something like this...

                        If you do a google search for "picture pockets" You might find someone who sells them here in this country. Or you might be able to make something like that. Wal-Mart or craft stores sell clear vinyl of various thicknesses pretty cheap. You might be able to get a couple of yards of that, sew it into "pockets" to put the post cards in, and make a type of photo curtain out of the postcards!

                            I have another idea. If you want a conversation piece, get an old coffee table., lay the postcards how you want them arranged on the table. Then put a piece of glass over the top of the postcards to fit the coffee table. Make sure the glass is sanded and finished.

                            I found something else you may want to consider. It's room divider where you don't have to put holes in your walls. And you can display your postcards on one of the solid screens.
