Most crafters love giving gifts—after all, there's only so much space in one's home for handmade objects. This title offers ideas for small, customizable craft projects that make great presents. Very few require specialized supplies, and almost all are beginner friendly. The projects are divided into categories by type of gift rather than by technique, but an index provides an easy way for those seeking a specific method (paper craft, for example) to find what they are looking for. Each project includes step-by-step instructions, with color photographs illustrating each stage, and most items also list suggested variations, allowing crafters to create the perfect gift for everyone on their list. VERDICT Covering everything from soap making and candle making to hand sewing and crochet, this volume is a useful addition to general craft collections.
