That is utterly adorable.  The flowers were a wonderful addition.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: attaching garlands to tables? on: July 23, 2011 06:57:18 AM
I'm carefully designing this project so that the postcards won't be harmed.  They're mostly around a hundred years old and I think it would be a pity to mutilate them for a project I only need for one day.  I'm attaching them with clothespins because I've done that before for wall art and not only did it leave them undamaged, it allowed me to change them out when I felt like it.

I suppose a safety pin would be good to affix them to the table.  I could hide it with a paper flower, too, if I find visibility an issue.  (My wedding also features some small, handmade vintage paper flowers, but I have some bigger ones I'm currently using as wall decor I could steal.)  I might want to affix it in a few place to minimize the risk of tearing.

Thank you for your help.

I'd been planning on attaching a string of vintage postcards to the dessert table at my wedding.  Unfortunately, with the wedding coming up shortly, I realized I have no idea how to do it.  I've seen a lot of pictures of things like that, so there must be a proper way to go about it.  If anyone has any idea how it can be done and wants to share, I'd be incredibly grateful.

Those turned out to be adorable.  That technique could be used for all kinds of things, I think.  It's a wonderful idea.

It's wonderful.  The feathers and large flowers make such a bold statement.  (And I always love black and red together.)

I have the same problems myself.  I like everything I make to be frilly and feminine and I am really confused when I try to figure out what men might like.

One thing I've found helpful is simplifying my cards for men.  For instance, last year the Father's Day card I made for my dad had a cute vintage photograph of a father and child and a simple Father's Day greeting on the front of it.  I left the rest of it plain and clean, whereas I would likely have embellished a woman's card a good deal.

I make the cards for the individual person and occasion, but I leave my card insides blank most of the time.  Occasionally, I'll remember a bit of a poem or something else from taking too many literature classes and I might use that instead of an individualized, handwritten message.

To be honest, the main reason I make most of my cards is because I think store bought ones seem cheesy and insincere.  To me, it just sees more real if I actually write out my sentiments simply, rather than try to express my sentiment with a badly written poem from a card company.

They're very pretty.  I like the patterns you used.  They look like flowers.

Thank you both.  I'm glad you like them.  A matchbox swap sounds like it would be great fun.

I usually keep a matchbook on my coffee table to have it near for candle lighting.  I thought they were rather ugly, and I had scraps left over from other paper crafting projects, so I prettied some up.  These are a few of them.
