Free Vintage Illustrations: Scissors

Let's see which vintage illustration made the cut this week.

There's something about antiques, even simple ones like scissors.
It seems craftsmen really took pride in the products that they made.

 I love the look of antique scissors.

I found this ad in an old magazine from the late 1800's.

 I cleaned them up and made them black and white...


 as well as brown.

I also cropped these pretty ones off for individual use
and created some sepia toned ones for an antiqued look.

 If you would like to use any of these scissor images, you are welcome to.

Have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by.
