Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Jingle-Bell Grape Clusters and Organdy Sleeves for Mini-Lights are among the festive creations readers can make with the help of this book. It provides easy-to-follow instructions for 40 craft projects that will spice up your home for the holidays, make decorating more fun, and personalize your gift-giving.
From the Publisher
Holiday ornaments make pretty and memorable gifts, and this slim volume provides some creative ideas for making your own. The allure is magnified by the color photographs by Julie Toy. Citris slice ornaments look yummy. A music-paper bell appeals. Among the charming possibilities are a frosted ball ornament and a gilded apple.

The book is designed so that directions face the photographs, a big help once you're in the middle of a project. A glossary of materials and tools, a source list and patterns round out the book. These are elegant ideas for an adult crafter. -Chicago Tribune

You've got to know your audience, and Ms. Sterbenz certainly does in the "Instant Gratification" craft-book series. The books offer projects that are easy and fast for people who have little time for such endeavors. Children can help with some projects.

In Instant Gratification Ornaments, Ms. Sterbenz teaches you how to make 40 lights, ornaments, and garlands.

An ornament you might want to try for the musician in your life is the bell made with old sheet music. Ms. Sterbenz also demonstrates a gingerbread house from mat board and beads. A project sure to have your mantel aglow calls for running a string of miniature lights through a sleeve of organdy.

The book includes patterns, sources, and a glossary of materials and tools. Each project includes a list of materials and equipment. The author issues safty warnings; for example, use spray adhesives in a well-ventilated room. -The Dallas Morning News
