Homemade Postcards

Friday, August 31, 2007

This week, Shug and I sent out a surprise to his Mimi & Papa, and his daddy - homemade postcards!

I used pictures of Shug, Sharpie markers, Elmer's glue, scrapbook paper, decorative paper punch, scissors, subscription cards from magazines:

I liked this one from Southern Accents because it already had a nice border:

I just cut the picture to be framed in the card, pasted it on with Elmer's glue (make sure you get the corners really good), and wrote a little message on the front with a Sharpie:

For the opposite side of the card, I needed to cover it up completely, so I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to size and glued that on:

I cut a square of white paper so I could write out the address (I should have used postcard stamps but I only had the regular ones - these are from the 'pollination' stamp series that's out right now. The post office has Tiffany stamps available right now, too.):

I made a different postcard for daddy:

...and put them outside for our nice postman to take:

Guess what?! They *loved* them and it was such a sweet surprise to get a postcard from Shug!
