Ideas for Scrapbook Projects from Vintage Craft Books

I have this ‘thing’ for vintage craft books.  As a matter of fact, I’ve now got two series’ of vintage craft books from the 60’s and 70’s.  The other other day, Todd came across this collection that you see below, "Encyclopedia of Crafts."  It is from 1975 and has so many wonderful crafts. I just wish there was more time to try them all. 

Retro and vintage crafts have become so popular these days.  Many of them can be tweaked and applied to scrapbooking and paper crafting projects.  I thought I’d share with you a few ideas from this series of vintage craft books that would be usable on a scrapbooking layout, altered project or card.  Come back tomorrow to see some really cool felt projects too!
