The sun is streaming through my craft room window here in the Heart of Ohio as I happily spend time creating Christmas tags with wonderful vintage images.
If you have yet to give a go at making tags, I am here to tell you they are the most fun ever.
There is just something magical about watching a scene come to life before your eyes with each cut of the scissor and dab of glue..
There are so many things to make with vintage greeting cards such as these scenery spools. Oh my gosh do I love to make these! They absolutely recall to mind hand crafts made during World War II when every inch of string and wrapping paper was kept to use for making ornaments for the tree.
A secret I will share when purchasing vintage greeting cards is to look for ones with doors or outdoor scenes on the front. The true treasure always waits inside where smaller versions are perfectly perfect for making shadowboxes or spool scenes such as these.
Sigh, I love paper art, and I love the coming of the holidays.
