Plastic Decorating – Treat Greeting Cards As Art

At work yesterday I scored a huge stack of cards, including a bunch New Yorker cover cards.  I am planning on creating a cluster of framed cards on a wall somewhere in the house, because I LOVE New Yorker cover art.

If you find yourself with bare walls, framing cards is a great way to get some art onto a surface without spending much money.  You can create a cluster of frames, mix some smaller frames with larger framed art, or fill a small horizontal or vertical space.

In our bathroom, I hung two framed 7 x 7 inch silk screened cards by Tall Cow, one of my favorite card companies.  I bought some frames at IKEA and mounted the cards on top of the mat.  All together it probably cost me 20 bucks.

    I do something similar with old calendars and put them in sequence. most of our walls are still bare (and we moved in last July!) so I am looking for unique (cheap!) ideas to cover a lot of blank white space.

    I used a calendar of vintage Playboy covers to create an art wall in one of my old apartments. Also, pretty paper or wrapping paper works well, too.

    I love the first card (with the bikes). I have a soft spot for bikes.
