Holiday Cards - Vintage Typewriter Photo Display Revisited

This is such an easy and inexpensive idea to do for the holidays, birthdays, thank yous, etc ...
Gather your favorite junk pieces together and take a snapshot!  To make them even more fun, hang a little sign within the photo range that says what the card is for (ie Happy Birthday! - Thank you - Thinking of you).  Then take the photo.  
 **For this photo I used typewriter font from a version of MS Word thats a few years old. 
Use your favorite source to have your photo cards developed.  I chose the 4 x 6 size with a matte finish.  The matte finish provides a more vintage feel to the photo.  You can mail them as-is, or add a handwritten message on the back of the photo.
Now for the inexpensive portion of my post.  I was able to develop my holiday photos and purchase envelopes for the whopping total cost of 35-cents each!  Make it even cheaper by drawing a line down the back of the photo to make it postcard-like and mail without the added cost of an envelope!

Happy Holidays everyone!!  Can I just say I am thrilled to be here with all of you!  You have provided me such a great resource of junking talent I can hardly stand it!!  Thanks so much. 

Since I had such great feedback regarding my typewriter photo display, I thought I'd go with that idea for my family's holiday cards this year.   To see the original post please go to http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/2957/vintage-typewriter-turned-photo-display .

Your projects are inspiring, and just the right touch of elegance - AND, by the way...so glad you're here too! Hoping we'll be able to get together in the coming year - for some junking fun!! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
