Old notebooks, discarded postcards purchased from a flea market, sheaves of sheet music: Anna Corba knows how to turn these vintage papers into fantastic contemporary crafts. This up-and-coming designer presents her beautiful projects, with detailed instructions, charming color photos, and tips to help imaginative crafters develop their own personal style. Her techniques for transforming the paper range from tea-dying to repurposing luggage tags. Embellish plain cardboard boxes with paint and vintage trading cards; make collage bottles; or create decorative paper cones to hold flowers, candy, or trinkets. With a sheet of paper, everything is possible.

Less a 'how to DIY' and more of a 'copy this from the back of the book'. This book is perfect for: people who want the bragging rights of making vintage inspired paper dust-catchers without the effort of finding vintage supplies or being inspired.
