A Magnum P.I. paper doll, a paint-by-number Ferris Bueller, a cassette tape greeting card—take a nostalgic trip back to the 1980s with 50 cool and easy-to-do art and design projects

Stuffed to the gills with hugely quirky and fun things to do, this actvity book contains easy peasy instructions to creating and making your own favorite art and design projects. Packed within its glorious technicolor pages are 52 awesome things to create, including: paper dolls of such icons as Alexis Carrington and Debbie Gibson, WHAM! puppets, a Pong duvet cover, a Pac Man cake to bake, a Super Mario cross stitch, a Madonna and Sean commemorative plate, and such pictures to color in as Arnold "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout"-ing, Tom Cruise underwear dancing, and Aerosmith and Run DMC imploring you to Walk this Way. Don't be a dipstick, step back in time to the decade no one wants to forget.
