HOW TO: DISPLAY TAROT CARDS

I am a huge Dragon Age fan. It's one of my favourite game series ever. I also really like tarot cards, mainly for the beautiful artwork, rather than their actual purpose (I've never been very good at reading them)So when Dragon Age Inquisition came out earlier this year, I pre-ordered the biggest collectors edition possible - mainly because it came with freakin' Dragon Age themed tarot cards! They are so beautiful - even better than I imagined - and I couldn't stand to keep them in their little pouch. I've been waiting for ages to display them, and now that I finally have, I thought I'd share it with you guys too so that you can display your own tarot cards too!

You will need:
A frame (20 x 16" allowed for 5 x 4 rows, and 16 x 12" fits 4 x 3 rows)
Tarot cards
Blutac (or similar)

1. First, choose the cards you want to display (you won't be able to include the whole deck unless you have a giant frame) and lay them out on top of your frame to see how many you can fit, and what composition works best. Doing this on the outside of the frame will let you ensure your layout looks good, and won't be cut off by the edges of the frame.

2. Remove the cards, keeping them in order, and open up your frame. Either use a separate piece of paper/card, or use the paper that comes with the frame (like I did). Use small pieces of blutac at the corners of the cards (the smaller/flatter the better, as then the cards will lay flush) and place them into position.

3. I firstly laid down all of the cards lightly, shifting them around until they were centred and the gaps between them were even. Once I was happy with it, I fixed them down more securely, starting with the middle rows, making sure all the edges were straight.

4. Once everything is fixed down, and you're happy with it, put the paper back into the frame and secure.

5. Hang your frame, or lean it up against the wall like I have below!

  1. I think my tarot cards are bigger than average (3x7) and I'm trying to fit them all into 2 frames, but so far I can't find any way to do that without having at least 4 left over
