About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English, Social Studies, and S...

Turning your postcards into little books is a great way to store your travel memories. It's also very low cost and easy to do.

Step 1: BoM

Postcards

D-Rings/book rings

Hole punch

Front/Back Cover- Optional

Cardboard

Decorations & Embellishments

Glue

Step 2: Select Postcards

Pick out and organize the postcards you want to use. It's up to you how they are organized, but I like doing it based on where I went first.

Step 3: Holes

Punch 2 evenly spaced holes in each of your postcards. A full size hole puncher with movable ends can be really useful and time saving.

Step 4: Connect

Use the D-rings to connect your postcards. As you add more and more cards, you can size up the rings.

Step 5: To Cover or Not to Cover

Adding a cover (and a backing) is totally optional. Cardboard works great and can be decorated however you like.
