Free Vintage Fruit Scrapbook Paper

Click on the vintage fruit scrapbook paper to see it full size.

This vintage fruit scrapbook paper reminds me of wallpaper you might have seen in Lucy and Ricky's kitchen on I Love Lucy. (This look also had a resurgence in the 1980s and 1990s, which gave it a whole new life.) The pears, apples, peaches grapes, strawberries, cherries and other vintage fruit designs used to create this scrapbook paper make the fruit look good enough to eat -- even if most of these illustrations are more than 50 years old!

This scrapbook paper would give a lovely retro look to a Thanksgiving scrapbook or handmade greeting or recipe card. The individual fruit vignettes can also be used as clip art or scrapbook embellishments if you crop the images. However you use it, I'm sure the vibrant colors and painterly style will enhance whatever you use it on.

If you like vintage fruit, you might want to visit my vintage fruit and flowers hub, which has lots of free images you can download. Also, Vintagerio has an unbelievable selection of similar images. Click the ad in the sidebar to take a look.
