The first project is a super easy one that you can craft using your own cherished recipe cards without any damage to them. With a few cards, a wreath form and tiny hinge or bulldog clips, those hidden treasures become sweet decor. Head over to my post on SC Johnson’s Family Economics for the step-by-step directions and final wreath image!While I had my recipe cards out to make the wreath, I scanned them into my computer and created a FREE printable of mini vintage recipe cards for paper crafting and scrapbooking. Simply download the image (click to enlarge), print to letter-size cardstock and trim out the individual images. Use a light brown marker to color the cut edges of the cards for the best visual effect.
I fanned my little cards around a round piece of cardstock (a large circle cut from a paper plate,) and combined that with some other fun items: Acordion folded vintage shelf paper, a vintage crocheted trivet, the center cut from a paper doily, doll utensils, a milk bottle cap and coordinating ribbon and trim.
