How to Frame Vintage Handkerchiefs DIY

This is a simple wall art project for my collection of my late mother-in-law’s vintage handkerchiefs. I found this rectangular frame at Ikea and the square ones I got a deal online. You just need some acid free scotch magic tape (it will say good for photos on the label) and maybe some acid free white paper if your handkerchiefs are very fine, see-through white. I first arranged them how I wanted them and ironed them out. I started with the bottom handkerchief, wrapped the edges around the back and taped to the back and did this with each layer. If you really want the handkerchiefs to pop you can try taping a white paper backing but I was lazy and kind like of like how you can see though them. The tricky part is to get it in the frame without wrinkles, I found if you lean the frame against the wall and keep the handkerchiefs upright it should go into place just fine!
