I am not a big paper crafter. I just take one look at the scrapbook aisle at Michaels and think it just would require a whole new house to start acquiring all that. I did do a scrapbook from our France trip last year, and made my own wedding invitations, but right now my paper supplies are confined to one or two small plastic containers.
But then one day I found a roll of this super adorable 70s wallpaper at a thrift shop. I bought it just because it was so retro, then I learned paper crafters are dying for vintage wallpaper for their creative endeavors. So I decided to see if I could find some more. I did.
I found this cute mauvy pink floral, a fun world map print (along with a matching plum textury solid) and this swirly blue-green one. Also not pictured is a plaid of brick and sage green. I think they range from the late 60s to the 80s.
So I cut them into nice 8.5 x 11 inch sheets and put them for sale in groups of 12 sheets (two each of six patterns) in my etsy shop. I have quite a bit on each roll, so if any of you readers out there are interested, as I am willing to do custom orders of one or more patterns.
I'm sure all you collagers out there might like these. Or you card-makers. And I read about a Martha Stewart article on making glass coasters with vintage wallpaper at Tag Sale Tales.
