Using Vintage Golden Books To Craft With
On the blog Vintage Street Market I learned about making a Golden Book Recipe Book.This is right up my alley because I have been making art out of old books for months. This is a whimsical twist to altering old books.
Altering The Vintage Christmas Book
The crafter in this project separated the cover into two new pieces and inserted some new pages to decorate and personalize . The new book is than bound. Family recipes are added in an envelope which is attached to one or more of the pages.
For all the details on how to make this project please visit Vintage Street Market http://blog.vintagestreetmarket.com/archives/2948 , a website dedicated to vintage crafting. Be sure to read their blog and also visit their online store.
Where To Buy Vintage Christmas Craft Supplies
This is the time you can use all your vintage Christmas notions, Christmas wrap, yarn scraps, tinsel, snowflakes etc. If you want to carry the vintage theme through out this altered Christmas recipe book theme, be sure to read my post "Shopping For Vintage Christmas Wrapping Paper, Notions, Christmas Craft Supplies" so you will know where to buy vintage materials for the holidays.
This wonderful idea was spotted on "Vintage Christmas Crafts" a delightful board on Pinterest.com
