Vintage Postcard Plaques


This was a super easy project that I just did for my little boy's nursery. I got a package of vintage Hummel cards as a gift when I was child that were just too cute to send off so they have been tucked away in a box so I decided I wanted to display some of them around the house!! I got a piece of wood and cut the card to fit on the top. I stapled two ribbon strips to the back of the wood then I wrapped the wood back with a piece of scrapbook paper (threading the ribbon through a little slit I made in the paper) I attached the scrapbook paper with Modge Podge. I then adhered the image on the front, sanded and inked all the edges to give it a antique look. I finished by tying a bow with the two ribbon strips.

Super sweet Monica! A plus that they have sentimental meaning too!
