I lived in Paris for 5 years in the 1980s and I always looked forward to walking the flea markets, looking for old postcards and costume jewelry. Of course, having grown up in the woods of rural Connecticut, I was also drawn to the romance of the iconic Eiffel Tower. Over the years, I ended up with a small collection of vintage renderings of la Tour Eiffel, a few of which are on display in my home today as a little reminder of my days living in La Ville-Lumière, The City of Light.
I love this printable one – it’s easy to assemble and the colors are just right. I printed it hastily on regular ol’ printer paper to take a quick photo for the blog, but if you used an off-white card stock, I think it would look even better. Using standard-size printer paper, the tower will be about 5.5 by 8 inches.
Download, print and post a picture of the finished product in the comments. I’d love to see where these end up!
