More Fun Vintage Freebies.....

Long Long ago.......in the late 1800s, early 1900s, companies put trading cards in their products.  They had a picture on one side, and the ad on the other. I have a shoe box full of these gems~!  I love them....and feel that it is so sad that everyone can't enjoy them.

So I am going to share a couple of them with you here.  They are great for card backgrounds, ATC cards, collages......Just so unique.

Let me know what you think.  And how you would use them.

These are fantastic. I would use them as journal cards in the mini albums that I make.

Oh, I love these! They are so cute to look at. A couple bring back memories from the 60's. I too agree they would be good in a recipe book, but would also make cute vintage tags. I believe they would make great cards also. You have a wonderful DT see what they can come up with. I bet their creations would be terrific. Edwina Brown

Thanks Paulette - these cards are fabulous. They would look great on a scrapbook LO tucked behind the picture or in a bottom cluster. I have some of these trading cards from a coffee company my husband's great aunt's family owned. Know I know what I'll do with them besides keeping then in a box :)

Diana said...

how lucky you have a box of them. My fav is Campbell kids. my mind is churning. ATC's, tags and card background. Thank u for sharing these.

April Rogers said...

Wow Paulette, These are so cute. I have some good ideas for using them. The little girl will be put on my nieces card when her parents start letting them wear makeup. Soup one will be for a get well card. Love them to bits!

I love these, Paulette. The Campbell kids are my favorite. I have no idea as to what I'll be using them for. :) Maybe I'll figure something out when school is out for the year.

Joanne said...
