I went antiquing this weekend and found myself digging through boxes of old photos. I found a few gems--mostly interesting children's photos. I scanned and reprinted them. I then decoupaged them on simple cards and added bows to make a stationary set. I debated adding other elements--flowers etc--but decided to keep the cards simple. I did use a decoupage glue that is supposed to have a yellowed or aged look.
I also found some great photos online that I also used. This photo shows the mix.
I also used the photos to make vintage-looking trinket boxes.
Here's some of the cards I made using antique photos I found online. Still cute but it's more fun to find the authentic photos at an antique shop
Here's one of the boxes I made using a photo I found. The paper frame was labeled Watertown, South Dakota. (I'm in Minnesota so it's not that far from here.)
HEre's another small box I made using more of the vintage photos.
All the photos on the cover of this box are reprints of ones I found.
Lastly, I was having so much fun with all this glue and paste I found some interesting Victorian nudes and made a little Valentine book for my husband. I found the book in the dollar bin. The book is pretty tame stuff but I'll just show the G-rated cover so as not to offend anyone.
