Vintage Bouquet Tutorial....

In or around 1947 a group was established called the National Hand Craft Society and it continued for about another 25 years. It was also known as The Fad of the Month Club.

Basically you paid a membership fee and you would receive a surprise craft kit each month to complete. Some of them were amazing and some of them were very very whacky.
Each kit contained all the supplies you would need to make the craft with full instructions and a colour postcard with a picture of the finished project.

Membership Form......

I had recently done some research on the club and was really surprised today when I recieved an email  with a tutorial for one of those monthly craft projects. What a blast from the past. When I was a kid my next door neighbour belonged to this club and I loved to see what she got each month.

The story behind the tutorial is very nice too and I'd thought I'd share it with you:) Go see:)
Here is the tutorial at Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom
