Some time ago I purchased a box of postcards featuring The Beano comic. The comic was first published in 1938 and is still going! I recently visited a friend in hospital, had no idea what to take, didn’t know if he was eating, enjoying reading or what.
So I took a copy of the Beano, well comics always made me feel better when I was ill (of course I was a child… but still….).
Anyway, I love these images.
I’ve not had many sales of my decorated boxes on Etsy so I’ve decided to rub three of them down and start again.
This time I’ve used these postcards and decoupaged the boxes.
Here’s how they look, I haven’t shown you how I did it as it’s pretty obvious – cut to size and stick.
I did peel off some layers of card, and just left the thin picture, as the postcards are pretty thick.
I covered the whole thing in a coat of PVA glue to seal them, they’re on sale in my ETSY shop
And the last:-
