I truly hate to give any book one stars. But this deserves it. The directions seem written for a six year old, while the items needed will have you scratching your head by what she means. Almost every other craft has a page that tells you to see project pictures here. I finally subccumbed at clicked the link. You can see the images only by providing your email address. The site says it will never spam me. Sorry, I want only the images - one thing other than those would be spam. Go to Pinterest. You'll get pictures AND clear required materials AND instructions.

Why waste time watching TV or sitting around doing nothing when you can learn new crafts and be productive with your time. This book is an excellent resource for many different types of crafts to make with your hands. Great for the creative types or if you want to take on new hobby, then this gem of a book will be great way to start learning. Comes with directions and easy to read explanations, and handy reference list. There are a wide variety of different crafts available, so I do recommend checking this book out.
DIY Crafts (2nd Edition): The 100 Most Popular Crafts & Projects I like the idea of the book but when you have to click to go to an online site that is not cool with me, include the picture in the booklet you wrote. Maybe they don't own the instructions and are copying others work but are giving them credit ? I don't want to sign up to a newsletter, I just want to see the finished item picture. Good projects for kids to do with adults.
This book is awesome..seriously.... honestly I never considered myself a mother who does crafts ..type of person.. But I always wanted to know how my cusin made candles and my aunt knitted things... I didn't expect much when I began reading this.. I thought this book would consist of hard to follow instructions on how to craft things.. boy was I wrong... I was stomped when I found out this book consist of easy to follow step by step ways to create crafts.. I found myself thinking" omg all these years and this was all it took!".. This book is amazing as well as simple to follow . My favorites are Happy cards, french knitting, paper tissue flowers, and upcycle egg boxes..
I have a lot of free time lately and decided to do something creative. Good thing I bought this book to help me in my creative process. The crafts are simple to make and they're fun to do with friends. I enjoy doing the upcycling-related crafts so I can re-purpose materials I have at home. Some of the final products are also good for personalized gifts for friends and family. I can't wait to try them all - one has for every occasion.
1.0 out of 5 starsEbook NOT a regular book even though printed. The book is a FREE downloadable book WITH all the pictures that are needed.

Mmmm what can I say. The ideas are undoubtedly good but this is an Ebook not a regular book. Every one requires you to go on line to see the pictures. Had I wanted an ebook I would have bought one. There is no point in this book what so ever. Thoroughly disappointing which is a tremendous shame and I feel conned which is worse. Have given it 1 star as I can't give it less.
