Great #DIY Idea for Valentine's Day Bunting w/ #Vintage Postcards #antiques #scrapbooking


Are you throwing a Valentines Day party? There are so many decorating ideas -- search google images, or pinterest. You will be amazed at what the creative folks do!



Super cute Valentine's Day decorations for the crafties. Wouldn't this bunting look fabulous using vintage postcard images?

Cut out hearts from vintage postcards (or print out copies), punch holes, string for a super cute flag bunting party decoration.

Get out your card collection, scan a bunch, and start snipping!

Display Your #Vintage Pop Up Valentine Cards in a Shadow Box Frame #antiques



Dimensional valentine

Do you collect dimensional / fold-out / die cut / mechanical Valentine's Day cards? Then you'll love this tip from kovels.com -- " Display it open in a shadowbox picture frame. Be sure to use archival mounting. "
Don't have a shadow-box frame? Use an actual open box, prettied up of course.
Don't have any fold-out Valentines? Layer some cute flat ones, glueing some small pieces of styrofoam in between to create depth.
Don't have vintage cards? Print out some from the interwebs. (For personal use only of course).
And this concept works for all holidays, and other subjects and themes. Kinda gets your DIY blood pumping with ideas, eh?!!
