Several months ago I came across this old Christmas book in a thrift store.
I was pretty giddy about it. Mostly because I never, and I mean NEVER find anything good at thrift stores. So super jealous of those who do.
Anyhoo, I digress...
When I found this book, I was immediately mesmerized by the pictures.
And I knew about as instantly that I wanted to use one of the pages as a Christmas decoration.
The hard part was choosing which lovely page would coordinate the best with my other decorations.
Since they were all so pretty I almost couldn't make up my ever-lovin' mind.
Then I saw this page.
Mind made up.
Isn't it gorgeous and perfectly traditional?
I scanned the picture I wanted.
Then I made some size adjustments using PicMonkey.
Basically in order to make a poster sized print you want your image to be large.
Once you have resized it, just save it.
Then order it through a photo service that will print enlargements. I used the photo center at a big box type store. A 20x30 sized poster print cost me under $10.
Then I put my poster into a poster frame that cost me around $10.
A cute vintagy Christmas decoration for about 20 bucks.
Please remember to be courteous when using images from a book.
They are images created by someone else.
Personal use only of course.
