Sewing Machine Trading Cards Display

In an earlier post I shared photos of my vintage trading cards.  Sarah and Ashley gave me great suggestions on how to display them.  With their suggestions in mind, here is what I came up with:

I didn't want to invest a lot of $$$ in purchasing materials for the display, so I went 'shopping' around my house and found the supplies I thought might work.  I used an old bulletin board, fabric, extra-large ric rac, chicken wire (thanks to my DD), fabric scrapbook flowers, scrapbook papers, and clear acrylic cards.  The only supplies I purchased were the spray paint and the hooks from which to hang the frames.  I am very pleased with the final product and I plan to post a tutorial in the near future.

Now I must go put a couple small holes in my sewing room wall so I can hang this and give those lovely turn-of-the-century sewing cards the visibility they deserve.  :)
