vintage wrapping paper: over the years I have found quite a few sheets and although I do have a tough time cutting them up I have gotten more in the habit the past few years. I would never wrap a whole gift in vintage paper but instead use a little piece to make a gift tag like in this diy.
vintage cards: These are always so adorable sometimes even if the card makes no sense for the occasion I often give them based on the artwork. The goodwill sells them for $0.10-0.25 and value village often groups them for $1.99 and up overall it is great to have a few in your craft box.
doilies: I can't get enough of vintage doilies I literally will use them for everything. Most people who know me can't get away without having at least one gift wrapped in a doily. I am a one trick pony when it comes to them..
random items: In my craft box I also have some vintage clothing tags, paper barbie clothes as well as vintage ribbons, buttons and pages from cookbooks....yep I like random vintage items
Finishing touches: Since my discovery of washi tape I don't know how I ever crafted before! My favorite Canadian washi tape seller on etsy is willowwashi. Most stores now sell them like the dollar store and Walmart so there is a lot to choose from and it is well worth it picking up a few rolls!
Anybody else come home with paper items when shopping at the thrift store?
