We found some mementos from the previous home owners; ie old wall paper. We wanted to make something for current owners. Any ideas

    You could easily frame pieces of the wall paper like art.

    That sounds kind of neat!

    What are the other items and what sizes are they?

    Where in the house did you find them?

    Please post a picture of your 'finds'. Once we see what you have to work with, it will be easier to offer suggestions on what could be done with them.

    Can you take a picture of the items , so we can come up with a creative idea ..

    Immediately a shadow box comes to mind. Take a picture of the house and use the editing mode on your phone's camera to make the picture a black & white photo or sepia tone for a vintage look , add that to the collection of things you have . You can always make a stand for the shadow box and make it into an end table , instead of hanging it on the wall .
