Vintage Christmas - Heartfelt Gift Sachets from Antique Postcard Images

My Victorian postcard collection is the inspiration for so many things I make for Christmas. Like these gift sachets with heartfelt sentiments on the back. They're made from antique postcards or vintage images that I have collected over time or I purchase and have the rights to use. 

Very early 1900's postcard (approximately circa 1905) from my collection. This is my favorite postcard. I love the vintage pink color of the angel's cheeks and gown and the evergreen chandelier with candles. This Christmas gift sachet can be found at my shop The Joyful Home - all my sachets are customizable.
This darling gift sachet is made from another favorite postcard. This postcard exudes such beautiful light and color and the sweet angel is beautiful. I added touches of gold German glass glitter and snowy, ice glitter. This sparkly gift sachet can be found here at The Joyful Home
Another favorite- a French postcard image with the most fashionable French girls all dressed up in their hats & holiday finery to wish you a very French Happy New Year!

I also make tags and other items with antique or vintage images. The little French girl here is dressed in pink and snowy, creamy whites. She holds a Christmas tree with pinkish lights, too! I hand cut these tags & add some silver glitter sparkle. Another big favorite of mine. This darling image can be found and purchased at the Etsy shop French Kissed - Trishia at French Kissed has a wonderful collection of old images. Or, you can purchase the tags I make at The Joyful Home
I hope you have a very happy Christmas!
