Recently I showed some vintage wrapping paper I bought at a garage sale and mentioned my mother has used the same paper, back in the 70s, to make a 3-D picture for my sister. Well, since my sister still has it, I decided to show it:
And since another blogger commented that her mother made these in the 70s too, I decided to show all that I have. My mother made this one out of Current note cards. By the way, sorry these pictures are not too hot-- difficult to shoot glass.
This one I have in my bedroom. Made from wrapping paper. Very cute.
This pair hung in my room as a kid for many years. I had them in my daughter's room for awhile. Love the bright (velvet) ribbon borders.
This one is a bit of a mystery-- my mom made a pair of these (the other was a kitchen scene), but I sold them off in a garage sale about 2000. I know, shame on me, but you can't keep everything! Anyway, years later, I came across this one at a local thrift store. Is it my mom's?? I'll never know for sure, but like to think so.
