Welcome to Our
Devoted to Victorian Scrap Papers!
"scrap", also known as lithography, is colored printed papers and usually embossed die cuts that were
used in Victorian times by both children and adults for various past times
and collections. Scraps first appeared at the beginning of the 19th century
in the form of engravings in black and white and tinted by hand. Color
printing came into play in 1937 and chromolithography and scrap
manufacturers appeared mostly in Germany and Great Britain. These pre-cut
scraps were relief stamped and embossed to give them a three-dimensional
look and feel. They are sold in sheets connected with small strips to join
Collections of scraps were pasted into special scrap albums and Victorians
mixed calling cards, greeting cards and any pictures they liked and wanted
to keep that were special to them. A lot of
people group their collections by themes or special occasions with verses
and poems. The Victorians were very romantic and loved sentimentality
used for decoupage, collage, gift cards, valentines, dressing screens,
decorating furniture, decorating small trinket boxes, fans, tabletops,
trunks etc. These are also used for Victorian ornaments, scrap booking,
graphic arts, stickers, and whatever your heart desires.
These scrap papers are faithfully reproduced from the original antique
scraps that the Victorians had. These are great to just collect
to use. All of the papers are die cut and embossed and most are from
Germany and many are still old enough to be marked made in West Germany.
Children and Adults alike enjoy collecting and using scrap paper. I hope you
enjoy the site.
