Vintage for the Graduate (a.k.a. messing around with old, falling apart yearbooks!)
Old yearbooks are very collectible, and so usually pretty pricy, but not if you can find one that's falling apart. Use the images (usually hilarious!) to make cards, banners, cupcake toppers, and scrapbook embellishments, something I started doing last year since my firstborn was graduating. So go dig through the junky antique store boxes and shelves and see what you can find. (Or you can just buy mine! VintageScraps.etsy.com)
That's my "little" girl on the left. She's just finishing her fist year at UNC, and since they won the national championship and all, we feel like we got our money's worth!
