Five 120-Year-Old Postcards

Five eco-friendly postcards can now be found in the ‘Sale’ section of my Folksy shop, priced at £5 each.

As always, they are sewn from stuff I rescued from the bin; used cereal boxes, and a battered copy of Girl’s Own Annual 1891 – making them more than 120 years old! They are not copies, I used the original pages from the magazine.

I never cut up books which could otherwise be read.

They were made a couple of years ago, at a time of experimentation, and are not nearly so slick as my current work, hence the price. Also, in those days, I did not keep such detailed records of my materials. However, I did not make them to sit under our bed in a shoe-box.

They are blank postcards, and can be used as cards for weddings, engagements, Valentine’s or anniversaries.

They are bigger than regular postcards.
