Inexpensive Junk Holiday Photo Cards

Happy Holidays everyone! Since I had such great feedback from my vintage typewriter photo display last month, I thought I'd incorporate that idea into my family's holiday cards this year. It was as easy as taking a photo of my display...

...select your favorite photo developing source. I chose to make 4 x 6" photos with a matte finish. A matte finish provides a more vintage, classic or retro feel to your photos. I purchased my envelopes separately from Walmart.

Mail your junk photo cards as-is or hand write a personal message on the back for your family and friends.

I was able to create this unique holiday card with envelope for only 35-cents each! Make it even cheaper by drawing a line down the center of the back of the photo and mail it like a postcard without the expense of the envelope. Be creative and take photos of other pieces of junk in your home. This type of card could be used for any occasion so the possibilities are endless!

Have a wonderful holiday season and keep on junking!
