DIY Postcards

When it comes to holiday shopping, I’d rather stay home.  This year my hunny and I are filling homemade stockings for each other, so I’m trying to get crafty and make some fun stocking-stuffers.  I’ve had this old San Francisco map sitting in my laundry room, so I decided to make him a set of postcards for Christmas.

The Method

Materials

  • Paper of your choice (old map, wrapping paper, recycled holiday cards, etc.)
  • cardstock or cardboard
  • Spray adhesive
  • x-acto knife
  • pen and/or stamp to decorate

Cut equally sized rectangles from cardstock and use spray adhesive to join them to the paper of your choice.  Let the adhesive dry and cut your postcards out with an x-acto knife. Decorate their backsides with lines and/or homemade stamps (I made a stamp stamp — silly, I know — but if you’re interested, you can read more about stamp-making here).

Easy peasy! If you don’t have any time left for holiday crafting, these would also make great thank-you cards.  I bundled a few together for my hunny’s stocking and kept a few for myself.
