Craft-A-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects....

I really like this handy craft book that was sent for us to have a little play with, and I wanted to share with you what I thought of it. Firstly I really love the punchy design on the front....


CRAfT-A-DAY-365 Simple Handmade Projects really is a super crafty book to have on the bookshelf. It includes daily inspiration with weekly themes. You can learn to make magnets, garlands, cupcake toppers, cards, wall art, and much much more. There are 52 different themes so there are many craft ideas to suit and that would appeal to people....


I especially love the alphabet garland and is on my to do list for a handmade Christmas decoration this year....



The book comes with easy to use templates and has a very easy to follow feel to the directions throughout. The how-to photographs are great, and the book would appeal to people of all ages and who have an interest in craft. In fact this is a really good craft book to enjoy with young ones and many of the creations are ideal for children's hands to get involved in. My children love doing paper crafts and there are plenty of card based projects to get stuck into....


The themes for the week do tend to be around the same main theme, so for example you have Fox Week for January 8-14 and Gnome Week for Jan 15-21. Therefore all crafts for those weeks would be centered around foxes and gnomes. Overall I think there are more than enough crafty projects to keep us going and is a perfect rainy day craft book to get out with the family and get crafty. Here is a little animation, courtesy of  Quirk Books that showcases the many design ideas on offer in the book, which really is one the cutest craft books on my bookshelf....
