Clever ideas for holiday crafts are always welcome at this time of year. Gingerbread houses are now made for competitions, with all sorts of edible goodies being fair game as construction materials. Gunter's houses and other buildings, including an igloo, all have a baked gingerbread base with step-by-step instructions for adding candy, icing, pretzels, etc. Enlargeable templates for baked pieces are included. Continuing the Christmas feeling, 300 Ways is a collection of crafts, songs, and recipes from nine of Sterling's previous titles, including Christmas Naturals and A Crafter's Book of Santas. The contents are similar to Natasha Tabori Fried and Lena Tabori's The Christmas Almanac and include wreaths and more gingerbread buildings. Both books are good for Christmas crafts collections needing new material. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
