Vintage Wrapping Paper

I love vintage wrapping paper, but I don't have much of it. If I do see it at an antiques shop, they are asking too much. And I never seem to find any at thrift shops. These are some of the very few I do have. The cutest cowboys and cowgirls:
The perfect paper for Father's Day, or to wrap a birthday gift for the special man in your life:
This cute little guy brings flowers and gifts for your anniversary! Hey Mister - come to my house!
I have just a scrap of the lovely tulips, a bit more of the "Hello" paper, both pretty in pink!
Best wishes for the bride:
Sunny yellow wrap for mom's special day:
I have only a very small scrap of this gorgeous blue and silver floral:
Maybe I will get lucky and find some more one of these days....

I hope you find more paper too, if anyone deserves to find it, it is you. You wrap the most beautiful presents anyone can ever receive. I just love the cowboy/girl paper. How cute! Love T

I agree, very hard to find vintage wrapping paper. It is something else that Lindsey adores and we look for it everywhere. She doesn't have very much. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Twyla

Same situation here, in regards to finding Vintage Wrapping Paper. A shame it's so hard to come by... I think your collection is very impressive! I'm fond of the paper with the tulips 'n lilacs... I'm a total Lilac Freak! I've enjoyed reading your previous posts 'n catching up with you... Love seeing all of your Awesome Thrift Treasures... Hope all's going well in your world...

Hi All!
If you love vintage wrap for scrapbooking or gift-wrapping, but hate using it (like I do!) because of the expense and difficulty in locating vintage wrap, have I got the web site for you!
www.SweetVintageWrappingPaper.com
is a new company that has just been launched, and they produce actual REPRODUCTION VINTAGE WRAPPING PAPER and REPRODUCTION VINTAGE GIFT TAGS! They currently offer four Christmas designs, and all of their design sheets are double-sided, so you get TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DESIGNS on each sheet of paper! It's precious! The gift tags are adorable, and between the two, you won't hesitate to use them all! Take a look, you'll love it! Their paper is high quality and it's made here in the Midwest. According to the web site, in January of 2010, they will be offering a second series of reproduction vintage wrap for weddings, birthdays, new baby, etc., WITH vintage reproduction gift tags. Take a look!
