First up, Christmas decorations from the 1919 Sears catalog--BUT IN COLOR--swoon--gasp--love those prices--and want dozens of each of course! We're also somewhat intrigued by the listing for "Japanese Decorative Fiber Roping"--wonder if it had any relation to the 'coconut' texture they used on putz houses? The catalog pages are followed by a 1969 ad for the Kodak Instamatic--with flash cubes! Again, click on the photos and links
And now a wonderful oldie but goodie and so worth looking at again. Tom's "piano houses"; wonderful vintage putz houses--some very unique examples--and some superb restorations too---not to mention a neat tiny vintage train--see it all at http://www.cardboardchristmas.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=766
Tutorial: Art texture using crumbled wax paper and glue; the music is kind of annoying so you might want to turn the volume down; click here
Tutotial: Another great art texture and a fab way to re-use cellophane, plastic wrap and bags (your editor loves this and uses it a lot on small furniture pieces, cardboard projects, and more) There are NO single use plastic bags in a crafter's home! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gyi_Iq83Zg
