Here is how: 

Step 1: Turn the picture on the inside, and cover the back with white paper. This will be your working area and also the front of the frame. (See the photo below)

Step 2: Cut brown paper into strips about 1 cm wide. The length depends on the size of the frame base. Glue up the same on the edges of the frame base to highlight the middle of the same. Around and between the postcards leave a frame of about 0.5cm. Depending on the size of the postcards cut surface of brown paper on which you’ll stick your postcards. First, glue the brown surface to the white frame base, then the desired postcards.
