During my mom’s most recent visit we headed up north to Solano Beach to do some window shopping. They have some fantastic shops along Cedros Avenue in downtown Solano Beach if you are ever in the area. One shop had some awesome industrial inspired items including old mail bags, locker baskets, and vintage flash cards. I fell in love with some of the state flash cards. They were so cool! Today I want to share with you my DIY Vintage Inspired State Flash Cards.
Since I didn’t buy the flash cards that day (the price was too steep at $5 each), I wanted to make my own.
How fun would these vintage inspired state flash cards be as a home decor piece?
I thought I could do something really fun with these vintage inspired state flash cards by getting one for each of the states my husband and I have lived since we’ve been married.
These are very similar to the ones I saw in the shop. You can even purchase them here.
I found them to be really easy to replicate. I found images using my Silhouette Cameo and printed them onto the cards. I am sure you could find the images elsewhere and print them that way as well.
The paper I used was just brown/natural cards stock. Very sturdy and gives a vintage look.
Here are all four of my vintage inspired state flash cards. I love them! I am saving them for a wall art project in my master bedroom. I love the sentiment behind these flash cards and they are even better homemade!
