Wrapping Paper Goodness.

More buys from that estate sale on Sunday…in the basement (usually my FAVORITE part of an estate sale) there was a trunk FULL of vintage wrapping paper. You could tell that some of it had been used — tape very carefully removed and paper smoothed out to save for later. As wrapping paper is one of my many obsessions, I could relate. I grabbed a whole bunch of it, and I’m sitting here wondering if I found all of the good stuff — I hope I didn’t move on too quickly! I do that when I get excited at an estate sale — even though what’s in front of me is AWESOME, I can’t stop thinking of what else may be around the corner. OCD, people, I’m telling you.

There’s just a sheet of most of it, two sheets at the most. Of course, I have no idea what to do with it. I’m tossing around the idea of ephemera packs for Etsy. I sold 15 or 20 of these on eBay a couple of years ago — it’s just kind of a lot of trouble, parceling out all the stuff. But I have SO MUCH great paper stuff — more than I could ever possibly use, even if I magically start crafting more than once or twice a year.

Shannon The angel and snowgirl are precious! I LOVE vintage wrapping paper! We have a paper goods store on the west side where I grew up with tons of vintage wrapping paper!

Leilani I pick up vintage wrapping paper when I see it too… I like to scan it and use it in webdesign/to make cards out of the patterns. I like that they spelled it the “Atlantique” and that snow girl paper is amazing.

janie hightower I can’t decide which is my favorite wrapping paper. The antique map is unbelieveable! The angels on brown background bring back very strong feelings from my childhood. This would be something I would buy just to go look at occasionally and make myself feel good.
