I am still working my scrap postcard album. It would be a never-ending project since I am receiving some postcards every week.

Here's my postcard collection that still need to put on a scrap postcard album. I will show you how I do it.

Here's the materials to be used in doing scrap postcard album:

*specialty board

Step 1. With the use of the pencil, trace a boarder line on the postcard.

Step 2. Make another inside line, an inch from the outside boarder line to make it look like a frame.

Step 3. Cut a hole on the center of the frame.

Step 4. a.Cut the inner line.

b. This is the proper way to cut the frame.

c. Cut the remaining part in opposite side.

This is the finished cut. It's Philippine actor, Piolo Pascual on the cover magazine that serves as the leaning board.

Step 5. Put an appropriate glue on the frame area.

Step 6. Paste the postcard facing the backside.

Step 7. Put a specialty paper as a frame to make the postcard looks more neat.
This is the front view of the postcard.

This is called the back-to-back scrap postcard on the clear book.

How about you? How do you keep your postcards or what do you do with your postcard collection?

Happy Postcard Friday Friendship everyone!

Thanks for sharing this idea!
I keep my cards in two ways: albums with plastic sheets for my core postcards that go with my family history and archival quality cardboard boxes for the rest. The boxes are organized by topic (such as a region or occupation etc.).

Thank you for this post. The photo strip nearly became a striptease of the magazine cover man. Funny.

Talagang may larawan- step by step!

Sino ba ang paborito mo, Red? Si John Lloyd o si Piolo?

I have lots of postcards so I have lots of boxes made for postcards and also 3-ring binders with pages that have 4 pockets per page.

This is a great idea, thanks for sharing. I am just a store in the box in plastic kind of person, should get creative.
thanks for sharing.

This is just perfect! I've been thinking of making a wall sized montage with all of my modern cards!

For other cards I scan both sides in and then have them filed numerically. I also have each card tagged with keywords so that I can find them easily on my computer:) Happy PFF!

How clever! What a GREAT idea! Thank you for sharing. Happy PFF!

Each of my postcards (except for the odd sized ones) is in a PVC protector, then the cards in turn are stored in acid-free photo storage boxes. Have to preserve them for the great-grandkids I'll have someday! Of course, I'm up to a dozen boxes; I'm running out of room!


Ive emailed you via yahoo. please check and reply ASAP!

Robin said...

I don't have all that many, but of those that I do, I keep them in a binder with clear archive pages that have pockets for postcards. I have a few that are too large to fit in the pockets. I have large clear photo pockets for them.

Thanks for sharing your collage.

Have a beautiful weekend.
