I recently went through boxes and boxes of things that my grandparents kept. I found photos dating back to the 1800's (the ones on the metal plates), and vintage photos on paper and postcards too. Many of the photos are duplicates. Now what am I going to do with all of these? Would anyone be interested in doing a crafty vintage photo project swap? What creative things can be done with old photos? Thoughts? Takers?

I always copy the original pics and use those on my projects. I have used them in trading cards, regular cards, altered books & pieces like glued on frames or canvases with other elements (collage). Give the photos your own captions, add hats or other things to the pics...there are a ton of things you can do!
