Honey, I’m home! I feel a little bit like the man who says he would only get cigarettes and was never seen again. My blog holiday lasted a little longer than I had previously planned but I’m sure that you have enjoyed the rest of summer despite me going MIA. Of course, I do not return empty-handed and so I am back with a new DIY tutorial for wooden postcards.
First you need images for your postcards. I’ve used a few free vectors from Freepik and designed my own images with Photoshop. Please print your images not on normal paper but use special photo paper.
Next, you need thin wood in postcard size. For my postcard I sawed plywood out of poplar with 4 mm thickness myself but you can also ask the guys at your hardware store (in Germany) whether they already saw your wood to postcard size for you (for free).
To glue the images onto the wood you can of course use wood glue but I used Mod Podge because I wanted to find out if this stuff is really as great as everyone says.At last I used clear varnish to protect the image a bit.
Now you just have to paint a few lines and a box for the stamp onto the back and your wooden postcard is already finished. My postman (in Germany) told me that 80 cents postage for the card is enough but I recommend checking the postage again at your post office.
