Super quick project with very nice results I think. I was inspired by this project: CD Earring Holder.
I found it was easier to punch holes in a postcard using a push pin but got the same results as the cd with a little art on the side. Enjoy!

make it the latest trend, then abandon it, and start a new one, make it an over heated sewing machine at 3 a.m make it transform a pile of scrap fabric into a next level handbag. Make it sparkle. make it somthing you will call a statement, but youll just call another random tuesday

thats so neat! If you don't mind I'm going to steal that idea! I have so many post cards (mmmm young Marlon Brando...) and I have been racking my little brain trying to find a purpose for them other than just sticking them to a wall. Thanks for the great idea!

Thanks for all the great feedback! The earrings are mostly hand-me-downs from my mom and the postcards came from a restaurant in NYC. They are the free kind that usually look good but advertise something, so I covered the ads with earrings. This way I didn't have to put holes in my good postcards. Thanks again everyone!

Thats such a good idea, im terrible for picking up free postcards ( I cant resist a freebie!) I have tonnes, they could make a nice little gift for someone too, if like me you are a student always stuck for cash!

This is wonderful! It solves two of my dilemmas at once - how to store my earrings, and what to do with that lovely Degas postcard I've got.  Kiss *runs off to make one*

You solved a problem that's been plagueing my earring collecting for ages! I had to make one!!! And it's weird cause I just recently bought a bunch of postcards at one of my favorite stores =) Anyway heres my take... please excuse the fact that I'm missing quite a few of my earrings =X Hence why I needed a holder.
