Our customer reviews

GORGEOUS GIFTS is the perfect book for anyone who loves creating things, especially handmade gifts to give to friends and family. All projects in the book are made from recycled, eco-friendly materials, such as cardboard, old envelopes, jars, magazines, and even potato chip bags. Activities include: tea light candleholders, plant pots, bookmarks, chunky bracelets, hand puppets, puppet theater, refrigerator magnets, drums, stationery, model airplanes, stained-glass windows, computer mousepads, and gift bags. Along with all necessary materials, each craft comes with detailed instructions and helpful hints. The book also includes random recycling tips, like how easy it is to reuse gift bags, wrapping paper, and bows from presents that you receive yourself. The great thing about GORGEOUS GIFTS is that the instructions make it easy enough for even young children to create the items with adult supervision, and entertaining and useful enough for adults to find fun in making them, as well. My six-year-old daughter and I have already made a few magnets, and plan to work on the candleholders next!show more
