Grafix Opaque Black Craft Plastic Colored Block Postcard

Project Description: Create your own personalized postcards to send to family and friends using Grafix Opaque Black Craft Plastic Film.

Designed by: Tania Ahmed

Difficulty: Easy


Steps to Make This:

  1. Cut the Grafix Opaque Black Craft Plastic Film down to a 6”x4” postcard size.
  2. Create a border with the masking tape around the edges of the Opaque Black Craft Plastic Film postcard.
  3. Mark off a rectangle area roughly in the middle of the postcard with more masking tape.
  4. Then paint in the second rectangle with opaque acrylic paint. If the paint is translucent, then you might need to do an extra layer.
  5. After the paint has dried completely, peel off the central masking tape.
  6. With a paint marker, add marks such as dots, dashes, or doodles throughout the card as desired.
  7. After the postcard has dried completely, peel off the masking tape from the borders.
  8. Then add a strip of strong double-sided tape or Grafix Double Tack Mounting Film along with the bottom third of the postcard. Take off the protective strip to reveal adhesive.
  9. Optional: Gently dust gilding flakes on the sticky tape with a brush covering it completely and burnish off the excess to polish it. Tip: Instead of gilding flakes, you can use glitter, flock, microbeads, or even embossing powder.
  10. Alternatively, you can add stickers or die-cuts to finish your postcard.
