Free Printable Retro Fashion Bookmarks/Tags

Few days ago I posted 3 full pages of fashion designs from an old magazine of 1956 that I gladly inherited from one aunty and today I bring you some Digital Work I made with few of the retro ladies. 




I created these nice bookmarks that can also be used as tags.   Here below are the ones with “You have read till here” ready to be printed, right click on the image to save. 

1878 Mrs. Winslow’s Receipt Book

Today I bring the cover and some back pages of an old 1878 receipt book from Mrs. Winslow’s collection; I like very much this illustration on the cover.  It would work very fine as a background on digital prints.
