Creative Crafts by Marjby Marj Scnheider, Marj Schneider, Denise Knight (Editor)
This is the book for those who want a simple way to add a crafty touch to their home or parties; for those who want to make gifts for friends and acquaintances; and for those who need easy, economical projects for groups of all ages. Step-by-step instructions for a variety of simple, attractive craft projects are provided without emphasis on a single technique or material.
Housewarming gifts, wedding & shower presents, party favors and centerpieces, items to brighten a hospital or baby's room, Christmas decorations, unique Easter baskets and Valentine's gifts, special mementos for loved ones, how to make potpourri or a complex ribbon bow for that special package, and projects which help create a warm "homey" atmosphere are all here... and more! The projects are also perfect for groups of all ages: craft classes, school classes, scout troops, retirement homes, day care centers and summer camps will all find this book invaluable because of its variety, simplicity and economy. Each of the 35 craft projects features a list of materials and complete, easy to follow instructions. Illustrations and black & white photographs of the finished items are provided.
The first section contains 18 craft projects for any time of the year; the second section has 10 projects for the Christmas season; and the final section provides 7 projects for other holiday seasons such as Easter and Valentines Day. Suggestions for adapting many of the projects to other specific occasions or for use with specific age groups are included and these ideas are sure to spark others - the possibilities are limited only by the reader's imagination.
