What's wrong with this picture? Answered

This past year I bought Volume 6 of The Complete Encyclopedia of Crafts for $1.56 almost entirely because of this photo I saw inside of it. The book is actually pretty good, but this photo is classic.

My first though when I saw the photo was... Grandad!

(Oh, please, AngryRedhead, post some projects from the book!)

Actually, I'm now wondering if "grandad" looks like Jamie Hyneman...

That would have been so much more fun if we hadn't been starting with my usual avatar, instead of the real me...

Love the new avatar!

The projects in the book are honestly pretty good.  There are instructions for making a loom, batik, combining beads and macrame, etc.  Of course, the designs/colors are very outdated, but I can see how they could be cool again.  It also has the oldest reference I've seen for turning spoons/forks/knives into jewelry.

But I'll give you the page that has directions and templates for making these particular masks.  That way you can pose for all your Instructables portraits with your very own grandpa paper bag mask!  lol

She's certainly giving "grandad" a poke with something...
