When you have playing cards that have missing cards, don't toss them in the trash. Stash them away for art projects like these.
Tip: Crochet a frame for these, and hang in small rooms, campers or other rooms for a lighter weight decoration. Make a collage or frame them individually. And of course, these make fun artist trading cards, if you participate in an exchange with other artists.
