    postcard book 2 inside stitching.jpgpostcard book 1 binding.jpgpostcard book 3 outside front cover.jpg

    hello everyone

    I sewed all the Valentine postcards from last year, and along with the colorful postcards later in the year, together in a book. I used a cigar box lid for the cover and a game board for the back cover. I can take the front cover off and add more postcards later on. (Won't that be handy for the Valentine swap coming up?) Did anyone else end up doing something with their Valentine postcards from last year?

    Pictures show the inner stitching with a random page showing. Stitching on the front cover and last picture shows that it must be secured with a closure of some sort. I chose a big elastic band, (or as dear old Gladys always called them a rubber) to hold the pages together. With the postcards not being all flat and uniform the stitching is a bit loose. But that's OK, it not going to fall apart.

    Thought you all might like to see it. Here's the youtube video that taught me how to bind in this method.

    There are four other parts to this video series if you're interested in making a board book.

    Just a standard sized postcard...which I think is 4x6. However, we've had peeps send a different shaped card in an envelope. Just as long as it's a Valentine to each person. FYI ( I think most are hoping for a 4x6. Some of our players have been binding their Valentine returns into books.)

    Awesome thanks. Just wanted to make sure so I can start working on it.

    Personally I collect 4 x 6 postcards, and love them sent naked. I am also a postcrossing member!

    Well, my envie didn't get in the mail last week as I'd planned, so it'll be in the mailbox tomorrow (Tuesday the 22nd) and the weather will be dry!

    Awesome Poppy altered envie by Tandy was in my mailbox! What a happy sight to see after mushing out through the snow to the mailbox (I’ve been snow bound since Saturday morning). Thank you, Tandy!
