I used paper cloth as the base for my DIY postcards! You can learn how to make your own in the Paper Cloth Tutorial I posted yesterday.
After I ironed the paper cloth to flatten it a bit I cut out ten postcards, using a knife and ruler. Then I got sewing on them. The rose illustrations are from an old favorite book that I cut up, and then I sewed a seam all around to attach the postcard backside that I printed on card stock. Voila!
Here are all of my cards, scanned:

Oh, almost forgot! I also made two ATC’s (artist trading cards) using the paper cloth, on sent already in the #craftsocial ATC swap!
PS: Roses are red, Violets are blue, don’t forget your friends – who wants a postcard too!
