I'm not a scrapbook person, but some of my friends who are encouraged me to try to make these note cards. I used old vintage photos of family members to make them special. I scanned the photos and had copies made.

Here are brief instructions on the particulars:

Use white card stock, 8-1/2 x 11 inches. Cut in half to make the card. Fold each one in half.

I bought a pad of paper with different black and white designs at the scrapbook store to use as background. Cut each piece to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches and use double-stick tape to tape it to the top of the note card.


I trimmed around my photos with craft scissors, glued the photo to a black piece of paper just a little bigger than the photo, and inserted special brads shaped like stars that I bought at the scrapbook store in each corner. Tape this to the card.

And you are done! You can buy 4-3/8 x 5-3/4 inch invitation envelopes at the store that will fit these notes perfectly.

I'm giving these as gifts to family members this Christmas. I'm sure they will love them!

To make a special card for my son's 40th birthday, I scoured over my precious photo albums. I scanned a particularly cute photo on my printer and printed it out. You could use the original photo if you want to give it to them instead.


I cut a rectangular shaped, stronger stock of paper, folded it, and glued the family photo onto the front of the card. Use rubber cement and it won't soak through any paper and is totally removable. I wrote my own special message to him inside the card. He and his fiancee were thrilled to see it!

I decided to pull out other family members in photos and scanned and shared their photos with them as well. They were so thrilled for the new old photos of themselves, and so was I!

Our older photos are historic treasures and memories of your family. Share them!

A friend of mine is celebrating her birthday early in January. After all the expenses for Christmas, I need to budget carefully, so I thought about making her a photo gift.

Use a decorative ribbon to tie the cards and envelopes together.

This is an inexpensive gift idea. I found a vintage photograph of a great-great-great aunt of my husband's riding a bull. It was too fabulous to do nothing with so I scanned it, made prints (about 18 cents each), and glued the photo to the front of blank note cards....
