Blog Header -Vintage Newspaper with Bird - Standard Size

Today's freebie is this nifty header or banner that I made using a vintage newspaper, a pretty teal bird, torn paper, and some curly scrolls and flourishes. This one is sized for a standard size blog.

This one was made to match the vintage newspaper background that can be found Here.

Make sure you click on the banner to bring up the largest size before saving to your computer, then just add your blog name and you are all set! (If you need instructions for adding your blog name click Here)

You can also use this image for digital scrapbooking, collage or as a pretty label!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi dear Karen!-)***

    I like this header very mach,So stylish!-)))


  2. Thank you so much for this Freebie. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 1 post on Jan. 27, 2010. Thanks again.

  3. Karen-I couldn't find an email address for you anywhere so am asking a question here. Feel free to email me @ Thanks! Question: I have a collage (thru my own pictures) on my blog. Is it possible for me to change my title to a pretty "Karen Font" on top of my header??? Take a peek and let me know. Thanks!

  4. I love this header! Thank you!

  5. Karen,
    You made my dream of a beautiful blog that truly reflected me and my theme come true. I had tried another Cute site, but frankly am not that kinda gal. But I needed a bird theme to match my title. Wow! Did I get more than I bargained for!! A robin (I tweaked the color) AND class!!
    I would have loved to use your "egg" background, but I needed 3-column. Any chance of that happening?
    Come see how it all turned out at

    Thank you, thank you.

  6. I've stopped by sveral times and I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your backgrounds and headers. It's hard to pick just one - there are so many great ones! Thanks for being so generous.

  8. This is gorgeous. I've just used it to prettify my blog.

    Thanks so much!


  9. Karen, how do I make this fit my page. For some reason the set spot is a big ol square, and this is rectangular?

  10. Hi Sarah,
    Do you still need help with this? It looks like you made your own version by layering it over a photo square. It looks great!

  11. Thank you so much for your inspiration and help in starting my Blog! You made it so easy! I still have some adjustments to make but mostly just having so much Fun!!Thank you again! Your Generosity is very Much Appreciated!

  12. Thank you Karen!
    Exactly what I needed for the header on one of my blogs!
    You're a very talented lady, I appreciate your generosity so much ;)

  13. Very pretty this vintage look. Hope it was alright to add my old photo name over the top of part of it. Let me know if its a problem...I will remove it.

    I noted that the page design is from your blog!


  14. Hi JeanneLee,
    Yes, absolutely! You can play with these however you like! Thanks for giving me credit. :)

  15. Hi Karen,
    Thanks ever so much for your teal bird header. Used it for my first ever blog
    Best of Luck,

  16. Hi Karen,
    Finally sorted my links. Thanks ever so much for your generosity. I've put you as the Generous Background Fairy. Keep up the good work.
    All the best,

  17. Hi Karen, love your site... This is my very 1st blog! I am completely computer iliterate and have spent many hours on this until I found your site, thanks for all the tutorial help, I've made it this far, but cannot get the header centered. I checked the size 648X252 (I think that is it) and put in the code and it did not change... any help would be appreciated. (not really up and running yet, but if you want to check it out: I am now a follower, I just figured out gadgets so will get your blog button up there!

  18. Hi Karen, love this header! Is it possible for you to do another one without the bird? I would like to use it for my blogshop. Thanks!
