“The projects are clever and creative—unusual ideas that feel fresh and inspiring. Best of all, they are totally doable with simple household material.“
“Amanda Kingloff has managed to bring three
essential elements of great design to kid’s crafts—
good taste, clever ingenuity, and sly humor—
elevating these projects to a place where anyone,
of any age, can engage, appreciate, and covet the process and final outcome.”
“Imagine MacGyver with a glue gun: Amanda cleverly re-imagines everyday things into beautiful new creations.”
With this book and a few basic
