Hinge Hanger

A couple of weeks ago Laurel @ Chipping With Charm posted a great photo holder project using old hinges.   You can visit her post here.   And while you're there take some time to go through her other projects, it will be well worth your time.  She has great ideas and some awesome repurpose projects posted.  

 I absolutely loved the charm and simplicity of her hinge photo holders so I dug through my pile of old hinges to try and recreate something similar. 
I found this hinge.
And hung it on the side of an old cabinet using twine.
I have been wanting to display this pretty French thread card and the hinge was the perfect size.  A magnet was all that was needed to hold the card in place.
This took all of about 2 minutes, so I took another hinge, hung it and displayed an old photo postcard.
This last hinge is one of my favorites.....look at all the detail.
I decided to use this hinge for a tabletop display.  
A picture....a magnet.....it's finished!
Thank you Laurel for the inspiration!

I'm linking with Debra @ Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.
