15 February 1957 “How To”

I thought today some simple vintage “How to” would be nice. I know I have seen these old cardboard letter files before, but not sure if they were at an antique store or just a stationary store. But, I like the ingenuity of this How To, as today one would just go and buy something like this already made up at a big box store. Here one is encouraged to make it themselves.filehowto I think it would be a great project for anyone who collects vintage dolls to make one of these with vintage wallpaper or shelf paper scraps.

Happy Homemaking.
