I want to alter boxes and have my first box ready but where do I start and where would one get old-timy pictures? Where do all of you get your pictures from? Do you print them out on card stock or paste the pictures onto cardboard?

Go to the ATC board and the first post is "Where do you get your images?" and there's a huge list there.

Also - magazines, books from thrift stores and library sales (books you can cannibalize), maps, catalogs, foreign language magazines and newspapers, sheet music and I color-copy my old family photos if it's a personalized gift.
