Over at The Daily Simple, Aubrey shares a way to turn old postcards into pretty jewelry. For this project, she used vintage postcards that she found at an antique store, but you could also use old postcards that you’ve kept from vacations or in your letter boxes. (If you are like me, you’ve probably got quite a few postcards in a shoebox someplace!)
One of the fun things about this project is that instead of finding all the supplies for making jewelry at a big-box craft store, Aubrey looked for hers at the thrift store. She says that all you need to do is find an old pendant necklace or earrings and remove the center stone or whatever is inside the pennant. Then, she simply cuts out the part of the postcard that she wants to feature in the necklace, puts it inside the pennant, and covers it with dimmensional Mod Podge. The result is a unique piece of jewelry that, if you are lucky, holds a fun vacation memory, too!
