I have started making inchies and getting more familiar with papercrafts recently. Alot of people find these really cool vintage photographs for things like inchies, ATC's and all sorts of altered art. Like these for example:



(from:http://belindaschneider.wordpress.com/2007/10/10/ws-inchies/)

Are these stickers or something? I thought maybe they are just from the internet, but I'm not quite sure what to enter into the search bar. "Vintage photos for papercrafts" and other variations didn't give me the desired results. I understand if you don't want to give up your trade secrets, but even a little nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.  Smiley

Thanks for your help!

I dont do paper crafts generally but I do a lot of jewelry and I typically look for digital collage sheets that the seller sends to my email and i have printed at the local copy shop.  the laser printing is particularly nice for crafting as the ink doesnt bleed.  for inchies you might try digital sheets scrabble tile as search keywords.  etsy has a ton of fantastic ones!  hope that helps.

there is a vintage store near by that sells photos at about $1 a piece. some are more expensive, but a lot of them are only a dollar

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.
