I've had a box full of old tea cards that my aunt gave me for a long time. Many of them seem to be from the 60s, and I guess they used to come with tea bags. Well, I finally decided to do something with them

This is my first post w/pics, so i hope it looks okay.

This is a neat way to use and display the cards! I wish cards like these still came with teas! I would certainly buy more tea! I might have to start saving my Celestial Seasonings tea boxes...in fact, I thinkI'll rescue  one from the recycling bin right now!

It looks like you sealed them in vinyl as panels and then stitched it all together, or something like that...

Thank you. There's actually one vinyl panel per side, but i had to sew around every card to keep them from slipping around inside the panel. It just about killed my sewing machine (although I did have to handsew the panels together).

Hmmmm...my sewing machine isn't an expensive model...and it seems to handle the beatings I give it pretty well! Maybe because I don't worry about breaking it!

I might try to send them through a laminator before I sew the panels together...since I'm using tea boxes, it won't be a big deal- no damaged vintage/antique goods!

Thanks for the added info!
