Easy Wall Art – Framed First Day Covers

My grandma had a box full of postal first day covers from the 40s and 50s that were just sitting in a box for the past few decades so I decided to frame a few for some cheap artwork.

First Day Covers to frame as artwork

I picked up four frames from IKEA and cut some white posterboard to fit in the frames to act as the mat for the frame.

Sorting through the first day covers I pulled out a few of my favorites, carefully centered them, lightly taped them to the posterboard and hung all the frames up on the wall.
