If you're into crafts and either own or have access to brown bag cookie art ceramic cookie molds, this book is awesome. (The molds used to be available everywhere, but I'm having a harder time finding them.) There are other projects not involving the molds. This book gives step by step instructions for homemade paper. I used it for years to make homemade Christmas cards. If you're crafty, this makes really neat crafts that DON'T look homemade. The directions are very clear, and they work. I really enjoyed this book when I had the time to do the projects in it. It was well worth the original price I paid for it. If you like original crafts and don't mind getting your hands dirty and your workspace a little messy, this is a highly recommended book!
