Ever forgotten what you did on holiday?
Ah...the memories! When I was a child I used to do lots of art and craft things on holiday. This year I carried on the tradition by a making a postcard diary thingy. Now I know what you're thinking - 'But aren't you supposed to send postcards, Willow? - ah ha not for this clever little project - oh no you don't. Really you don't - otherwise it won't work.

Anyway, it's a great way to remember all the exciting things you did on your holiday or trip - plus you could even frame it! In the first picture, I've put my postcards in a 'Paperchase' wallet to keep then nice, but you could also tie it up with pretty ribbon - like in the second picture! Which was my original idea but the hole punch was too small...oops :)

PS: The time limit is for roughly how long each postcard will take you. It may seem like a long time to part with from your holiday - but time flies when you're having fun!

  • How to make a collages. Postcard Holiday Diary - Step 1
    Step 1

    First make a mental reminder to oneself to buy a postcard everyday (everyday that you are on holiday/trip that is - don't get too carried away!). Or if you're not a fan of postcards, take a picture everyday instead!

    It should be of either the place you went to that day or something that reminds you of the day.

  • Step 2

    Everyday, simply write a personal account of everything you did. From weird and wonderful to emotional and memeorable!

    Don't forget to add lots of colour and stickers!

  • Step 3

    When you get back from your holiday/trip tie together with ribbon or show off in a simple wallet!
