I love these vintage Library Cards.
They were found in the basement of the oldest library in our town.
The patina on them is from years of sitting in wooden boxes damp from the chilly basement
Their lines left blank instead of being filled with titles like:
Pride and Prejudice
Romeo and Juliet
Actually I'm lying
I bought 500 of them for $12 from a school supply website
They look old though right?
I aged them using a very simple process
I will share the instructions in case you too would like to lie to your friends and family
telling them you own a piece of library history
Set oven to 200 degrees
Pour fresh brewed coffee into a large bowl
soak each card one at a time
place soaked cards onto cookie sheet
sprinkle with more coffee or vanilla extract
bake until dry and browned (about 2 min)
It's that simple!
