Book Review

101 Crafts Under $10 is the perfect book for recyclers and do-it-yourselfers because the base materials for most of the projects are items you might already have in your home. When reading through this book I was amazed and intrigued by the variety of crafts within its pages. The projects are broken down into these general sections frames and photos, creative candles, papers & cards, pillow panache, speedy stitchery, nature crafts, kitchen quickies, and toys for tots. This book also includes a chapter on the craft tool kit.

You really get an idea of how special the crafts are because they are displayed and photographed in beautiful settings, which make them stand out in your mind. Seeing how they look in their natural settings is enough to inspire you to make them. Each chapter and each craft has its own little introduction that also give you a sense of the type of projects and how they can be used in your space.

The projects in this book include something for all skill levels of crafters and using a variety of techniques. The instructions for the projects are clear and detailed and are accompanied by a complete materials list. The only thing I thought should be different about this book is the chapter on the craft tool kit should be at the beginning of the book so you read it before creating one of the crafts. This way you can get familiar with the tools and supplies you will be using for the projects. However, if you are like me and you flip through the entire book before choosing a project you want to do, you will discover this important chapter and look it over before beginning anything. Happy crafting!
