Guide Review - The New Jumbo Book of Easy Crafts
The Imagine and Create section offers a variety of projects to make just because. You can make a few different kinds of clay to play and sculpt with. There are also several printing and painting projects, and a large section of animals to make using many different supplies.
The Wear and Use section offers not only several projects for jewelry and clothing items, there are also quite a few ideas for costume accessories you can make. This section also offers quite a few projects that you can make and use such as magnets, frames, baskets, and bookmarks.
There is something for everyone in the Make and Play section. You can create fun toys, creative games, unique puppets, and even a collection of musical instruments. Not only will you enjoy making these projects for yourself, many of them would make great gifts, especially for kids.
Finally, in the Decorate and Celebrate section, Judy offers several projects to help you celebrate different holidays and special events. Many of them can be used either as decorations or given as gifts. There are also several card making projects.
Usually I try to pick out a few favorite crafts from a book I review but I found that an impossible task with this book. There are just way too many fabulous projects. This book definitely offers a creative outlet for every mood, occasion, and situation!
