Overview

The only thing better than getting gifts is giving them, especially when they're homemade. In this book Clea Hantman creates objets d'art that scream "Give me to someone you love!" We're talking Lovely Luggage Tags, Happy Little Hand Warmers, Pet First-Aid Kits, and oh-so-much more. Azadeh Houshyar, Clea's trusty artistic sidekick, adds a hearty dose of color and spice and everything nice to make this book more irresistible than a warm mug of frothy cocoa on a chilly day. (Speaking of, did we mention the Haute Hot Choco Kit?)

You know, even the book itself makes a fab gift!

*Warning: Gratuitous hugging and kissing might follow.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
The "intro" chapter sets the tone for I Wanna Make Gifts with an "ode" to gift giving: "It makes your insides all warm and puts a smile on your face. What else do you get? The most heartfelt embrace." Clea Hantman's craft book has the feel of a handwritten guide from one girlfriend to another, sharing secrets and ideas for special gift projects. The nine chapters include "classically cool gifts," "weird & wacky gifts," "rock-n-roll gifts," "pet-lovin' gifts," and "krazy kits." The "cute and cuddly cat toys" and pet first aid kits would be wonderful projects for Girl Scout Troop meetings or 4-H fundraising projects. Colorful illustrations on each page add to the ease of using the book. Each project has a "what you need," "the how-to," and sometimes a section on how to make the gift even more special. Boys and girls could both find interesting projects to create with assistance, although the book is definitely designed for girls. The typeface can be a bit difficult to read in parts, especially for younger children. The final chapter, "the outre," advises girls that the next book in the series will have homemade accessories. This book is part of the "I Wanna Books" series with more information at www.iwannabooks.com.

Meet the Author


In her early years, on a boundless quest to never be bored again, Clea Hantman picked up the craft bug. Thrift stores are now her home away from home; the faint scent of glue, her perfume. For Clea, crafting isn't just a hobby, it's a way of life! She lives this way in sunny San Diego with her hunky hubby, her brilliant daughter, and her movie-star dog. This is her sixth book. Visit Clea at www.superclea.com.

Azadeh Houshyar owes her love of making things to her craft-a-holic mom who blessed her with a Hello Kitty sewing box at age 8 3/4. The box is long gone, but her trusty pink and silver Hello Kitty scissors are still a favorite crafting tool. An illustrator and designer, Azadeh lives in New York City with her other cherished cutting tools, an X-Acto knife and a superstyling Rotatrim.
