I’ve always loved illustrations (Illustration was actually my major in college for awhile) and then if you add in the extra goodness of being vintage—it’s like two of my favorite worlds collide. Which brings me to this project: Framed Vintage Illustrations.
It’s the easiest project ever.
All you need is a an old book with awesome illustrations and some frames. (My book came from a thrift store for 75 cents and the frames came from the Dollar Store—making this project cost just under $3.00.)
Now just find the illustrations you like, cut them out, stick them in your frames and your done.
Oh and, just for the record: I don’t like the idea of cutting up books. Something about it just seems wrong to me. I really really really love books but I also really love the illustrations so in this one case I’m allowing myself to use the scissors and I justify it by knowing that the illustrations will be seen and admired more hanging on the wall than tucked away on my bookshelf.
And speaking of illustrations and being tucked away, my kids are waiting for me to watch Peter Pan with them before bedtime so I better go. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
