There are a few different things you can do to display your items creatively:
Mount your photos on card which coordinates with your frame. I chose grey as it would work well with the colour scheme in my home.
Use a die-cutting machine to cut out parts of photos or postcards. I die-cut hearts from a postcard; this allowed me to show off the best bits whilst saving space and adding interest with different shapes. Alternatively if you don’t have a die-cutting machine you could also use heart shaped craft punches.
Create location pins from cardstock to draw attention to places on the map. To create a template, fold a piece of paper in half, and draw half of the pin against the paper’s crease. Cut out your pin and you will find it is perfectly symmetrical.
Adding your destination’s flag will help bring everything together and remind you of the country you visited. I made a heart-shaped flag out of card, but you could use felt, draw one yourself, or find a printed version to use.
