I have some beautiful old post cards I want to scrap but I'm not sure how. I want the front to show, but I also want the back showing too...what to do?

i would probably make a copy of the back; then i could scrap both front and back! jmho

That's exactly what I would do, and you could put the postcard in photo corners so that you're not putting adhesive on the postcard and can pull it out to look at the real back if you wanted to.

How about an acrylic album.....you could see both sides that way.

If you want to keep the original, you could scan them on both sides and print them as photographs or do color copies of them.

That's what I do. I color copy the written side. It looks exactly the same as the original. Maybe even better.

I've been thinking along the lines of the clear acrylic albums and the sewing into the page protector...if it would be possible to make a postcard size pocket (sort of like a wallet photo holder) and somehow attach it to the lo through the page protector and have it hinged so you would first see the front, and then could flip it to read the back. This would protect the postcard and the lo. Anything like a postcard size wallet photo holder out there?

What about using the page protectors that are made for 6, 4x6 photos? The ones I use are 12x12 size, and I put pics in some of the pockets and cardstock with journaling in other pockets. If you don't put anything behind the postcard, you can see both sides.
