Akram's Ideas: Vintage Pack-o-Fun Valentine Crafts

Vintage Pack-o-Fun Valentine Crafts

Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away and that means now is the time to get your craft on if you plan on making your loved ones something special.

In the coming days I plan to share some fun valentine ideas for you, but today I wanted to share some pages from to vintage Pack-o-Fun booklets I thrifted not to long ago.

These fun little books are the February issue of both 1959 and 1960. Each booklet contains several crafts that are not only easy to make but usually made by recycling household items, like bottles and toilet paper rolls.

While not all these crafts are practical in our modern day, with a little reworking they could be applicable. At the very least they maybe something fun for the kiddos out there, to do.

I’m not sure if I will be making any of these projects, I did enjoy going through the booklet and seeing all the fun crafts and photos from years gone by. I always like seeing what average life was like in the past.
