August is the month that most kids dread - time to head back to school! Students might not like the early alarms and long days spent learning, but I'm a big fan of old flashcards, vintage labels, and other papers you'd likely find tucked in a desk from the 1950's or 60's.
It's kind of a given that this month's Paper Parcel would be stuffed with a lot of old flashcards. Subscribers received an instant collection of vintage flashcards in a wide variety of subjects, sizes, colors, and styles.
Cute little clocks from a 1950's classroom in either yellow or white - whichever suits your fancy.
Vintage book pages covering all of your favorite (or least favorite!) subjects in school - writing, geography, arithmetic, and more. Plus pages from an old lesson book to keep yourself organized.
Various forms, tickets, and cards which would have been used by both teachers and students alike. Aren't the lunch punch cards cute?
I can picture this collection of vintage red and blue border labels adorning school books and class reports in the past, and embellishing scrapbook pages and Project Life inserts today!
Unused vintage stamps that can still be used as valid postage have become a staple in the past few month's Paper Parcels, and the tradition continued in August with a set of education related stamps. Public education and the PTA were represented, as well as subjects covered in every classroom such as the landing of the pilgrims.
I always include some vintage playing cards in each Paper Parcel, but wasn't sure if I would be able to find any with a school theme until I came upon these presidential cards. Who didn't learn about George Washington and Thomas Jefferson during their early school years?
Each Paper Parcel was wrapped up and finished off with a portrait from a 1950's year book. All of the boys and girls looked so distinguished back then!
The Paper Parcel subscription service runs for just three more months! If you would like to get in on next month's Paper Pack, there are a handful of spots left for October available here.
