Vintage Sheet Music

 

Merry Christmas crafty friends! Music is everywhere here at Paper Wishes! I don’t know how she did it, but our Paper Wishes buyer has found a treasure trove of vintage Sheet Music and it’s perfect for paper crafting!

The music is packaged in collections of both large or small sheets and some have torn edges and cover art included.  You will receive at least 4 sheets per set, more if the pages are small.

I used a 3-D Flower Template to make roses and leaves to decorate a frame.

I traced the swirl rose pattern onto the back of the sheet music.

You can cut out the swirl, but I chose to tear some of the roses to give the edges a distressed look.

Then I inked the torn edges.

Starting at the end of the swirl, wrap around a bamboo skewer or small paintbrush handle. When you reach the opposite end, glue the end to the base of the rose.

I glued a burgundy Crepe Ribbon bow to the corner of a frame and glued a cluster of flowers and Hammered Gold leaves to the bow center.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Paper Wishes!

    LeNae: Being a musician, I love this, but know a lot of musicians that would kill you for tearing up vintage sheet music. I have quite a bit myself. It is just like a rare book! Marie

      Hi Marie, I understand your concern, I really do, but everyone should express their love for music in their own way. This is just one of mine.
