I don't know what I can do with them. They're all kinda old and colourless cuz I bought them at a thrift place. hehe. Any ideas?

you could decoupage them on a trunk or something, unless they are reel dull, then that would kinda suck

maybe make some of those paper ornaments that people make out of old christmas cards, not sure where the link for that is, but its some where on craftster i thnk

you could send them to me?  Cheesy lol, yea i have way to many postcards, if i thnk of any actually useful ideas for my own, ill post here again  Tongue

oooooh, how old are they?  my mom makes really cool jewelry out of old victorian postcards.  she makes microscope slide pins with things shes cut out of them, like this:

 maybe you could try something like that? i'd love to see what you end up making with them!

1. Even if they don't look great, you could go through them and see if you know anyone who lives near the sites featured.  They might enjoy having them.  I found a postcard of the HS in my town.  It's old and faded, but I got a kick out of it, so I framed it and hung it.   

2. You could scan a couple of them and try selling them on eBay.  If that works, scan the rest.

3. If they haven't been mailed, use them.  Send thank you notes, invitations, or any simple note.  Unfortunately you do have to use today's postage, even on yesterday's "penny postcards."
