Well, look no further!

In this cheeky sequel, Mark Montano picks up where his wildly popular The Big-Ass Book of Crafts left off, with even more spectacular—and easy-to-make—projects sure to satisfy crafters of all skill levels. Turn colorful ribbons into a show-stopping scarf . . . transform old cargo pants into a kick-ass carryall . . . a high-drama neckpiece made out of zippers? Absolutely. Along with a host of other wearable wonders, this exciting all-new volume includes sections such as Pillow Talk (fun, comfy, and made from the most surprising materials), Letter Perfect (cool designs to pop into the mailbox nearest you), Hey, I Could Use That (make a big statement with little things from magnets to nail polish), Just Kid-ding (cheery décor made from kid-centric stuff, guaranteed to make you smile!), That’s Shoe Biz (fun fixes that give sidelined footwear and handbags a whole new life), and dozens of other ideas that are inventive, imaginative, and just plain fun.

With his trademark humor and no-holds-barred approach to crafting, Mark will have you tapping into your creative soul and taking simple techniques to a whole new level in no time. We’re not talking plant-hangers and potholders here—the more than 150 handmade projects in this truly unique compendium are artistic, eye-catching, and cutting-edge, from cool brooches and earrings to ingenious belts and bags, from Bauhaus-style furniture to fishbowl lanterns, and so much more!

These homemade art pieces range from rakish, imaginative improvisations to elegant jewelry and wall-hangings, each accompanied by step-by-step instructions and full-color photos and illustrations. Playful; informal; stylish.

    Love crafting first nookbook on crafting

    Absolutely love crafting books. Thought id try this book on nook to save space on my bookshelf. Love the book but HATE the fact that the book stop changing pages every other page. This is frustrating enough to make me wish i had stuck to getting the hard copy like i did with the first book..i do not recommend this nookbook at all.

    Not happy

    This book is sooo aggravating. The pages stick & won't turn. Tried using the go to page function on my nook & this works occasionally. Content of the book may be good but if you can't turn the pages how would you know?
