Vintage Cigarette Pack Umbrella

Here is a unique umbrella made out of cigarette packs. During WW2 in Japanese internment camps in this country, this craft was created, using cigarette packs. The method used is the same as the one used to make full size paper umbrellas (wagasa). I believe this specimen is the product of a home crafter from the 1950's or 60's. Apparently a kit was available at that time with all of the supplies (except the cigarette packs, which were supplied by the crafter) and instructions to make these amazing umbrellas. This particular umbrella features Winston cigarette packs. The red and cream packs were cut up and folded in such a way as to create a flower design across the top of the parasol. Fabulous!…
