I love vintage shopping at bookstore and thrift stores. There are a few online shops I love to peek in on too. On a recent outing,Â I stopped by a favorite local, independent, thrift shop. I could hang out in the book section of this Tempe thrift shop called Gracie’s, forever. I can never figure out how they always have so many vintageÂ books and magazines. It is incredible.Â On this recent trip, I found a pile of craft magazines called Pack-O-Fun “The Only Scrap-Craft Magazine” The whole collection is from the 1950’s. The paper is aged,Â foxing and is brittle but oh the treats I found inside! I am going to have to shareÂ my favorite interior pages in a series because there are so many! I will kick it off with this cardboard camper gem. I love the illustration as much as the project.
I will use this installment in the Pack-O-Fun SeriesÂ to celebrate Easter. This year Easter falls on April Fools Day. I sure hope the Easter Bunny doesn’t play any funny business – were looking forward to our baskets and annual Easter egg hunt.Â this year we plan on modeling the Pak-O-Fun example for creating “Dressed Up Easter Eggs” We have ourÂ constructionÂ paper ready, along with our scissors and tape. I will postÂ an update to share the outcomes. Happy Easter! PreviousÂ shares in the Pack-O-Fun Series: Paper Plate Ferris Wheel Pack-O-Fun
As part of the ongoing Pack-O-Fun series, I bring you another fun interior page. This craft is a brilliantÂ Ferris wheel made out of paper plates. So cool and vintage. I want to make several of these out of partyÂ paper plates with colors and patterns on them. More on the series: Pack-O-Fun
