    They are gorgeous!

    When I searched "vintage" I was looking for instructions for putting old photos into small antique containers like compacts and cigarette cases. Any suggestions?

  • Sandra's Artbox

    Pattie Bailey, Oh I never thought of that!! Sounds great. In my limited knowledge of odds and ends, trying a compact, ( assuming that the powder is completely gone) I'd try fitting the photo, ( if you can get a copy of the photo .. might be preferable to test on that rather than the original, until you get a method, that ensures you will not kill the image)

  • Sandra's Artbox

    I'd cut a mat the size of the circle that contained the powder, cut the inside dimensions, 1/8 smaller than that of the photo. (better cut the inside opening first, easier to hang on to when doing the photo opening. Use clear acetate to protect the photo from whatever is in the air. ( Use acid free mat, when working with any photo, especially old ones) you can anchor with acid free tape on the photo)

    if you can make a hinge with ribbon, you can fix it where the photo is easily replaced, or you can get to it. the ribbon you would open it with, could be a small bow? :)
