DIY tutorial videos (er, I mean films) have been around since well before the internets, as this little gem unearthed and GIFified by OKKULT Motion Pictures proves. The film is called At Your Fingertips: Boxes and it was made by Peter Erik Winkler and Mary Anna Winkler way back in 1970.

The film illustrates some ways that old cardboard boxes can be used to make crafts and makeshift toys in such bizarre and inventive ways that it’s already been given the comedic commentary treatment by the RiffTrax guys. Despite some of the amusingly bad crafting that takes place in the film, or maybe because of it, it’s well worth a watch just to look back on one of the granddaddies of today’s crafting and DIY tutorial videos!
