Vintage Crafter's Cafe Ephemera Swap

I belong to a group on Facebook called Vintage Crafter's Cafe; it's a bunch of like-minded people who love to create with old stuff!  (If interested, I can ask to add you to the group -- just let me know via email!)  I showed you the pin cushion swap we recently did, and we just finished swapping ephemera with a partner.  Here's what I sent her:
 All wrapped up in a vintage legal sized parchment sheet, wrapped with a wide fabric ribbon and closed with an old index holder from a file!
 The thing wrapped in wax paper at the top is an old paper collar!


 I included a sweet, handwritten letter from a girl to her dad who was away at war, and one from a man who was a stamp collector, along with his stamps!
I really love that photo of the young man, probably from college, in its fancy folder.
I put the items in separate bags and holders, for maximum "opening" fun!
Swapping can really be a joy.

Lucky recipient of your goodies. I always think you go above and beyond what might be sent by other collectors. Beautiful.

What a great bunch of art papers etc. I am in the mood to do some paper crafts today, well making tags that is.
I do miss having my fun time now that I am back to work full time

You always have the best swap goodies to share - your partner had to be thrilled! I've been missing swaps and would like to join this group after the first of the year. I'll email you then to remind you.
