Do you have a card collector in your family? They can display their favorite cards in a safe way, and trade them out whenever they’d like!
- Large wooden frame with glass removed -or- I recycled an old shutter
- Acrylic paint & foam brush
- Scrapbook paper
- Double-sided adhesive -or- Mod Podge
- Stiff plastic card protectors ($4 for 30 at Wal-Mart)
- Hot glue gun
When I suggested making a wall hanging with my daughter’s Pokemon cards, she was appalled! There was no way she was going to let me glue her cards anywhere, not even to make a cute picture. So I bought a pack of top-loading trading card protectors at Wal-Mart, so she can trade the cards out whenever she’d like.
The way you paint and decorate your card display will depend a lot on the frame you use. You’ll want to decorate directly on the cardboard backing. You can use Mod Podge or double sided scrapbooking adhesive.
Space the card protectors evenly, and adhere with hot glue. Slide in some favorite cards, and you have a display with tons of personality.
