Welcome back to McCall's Summer Make-It Ideas from 1966! These two projects — the pop art cards and the paper mobiles — share a spread and a text box, I guess because they both involve paper and wire. I like the simplicity of the girl on the cards: Just a half-circle for a head, sequins cut in half for eyes and mouth, and then a yarn hairdo. And the perfection of the paper mobiles is pleasing, and is certainly on-trend (would something like this ever not be on-trend? I hope not).
Need directions? Here ya go!
I did google Margreet Akkerman, the craft designer for the mobile, and it looks like she designed a bunch of crafts for McCall's over the years. Unfortunately I can't seem to find out more about her! If anyone knows Margreet's history, drop me a line and satisfy my curiosity.
