Yvonne H, April 27, 2011 (view all comments by Yvonne H)
This book is as awesome and as edgy as it’s name! Full of fun, inexpensive, avant-garde arts and crafts, most are incredibly functional and easy-to-make.

My favorite projects are the ones that incorporate old, unwanted books for repurposing, such as framed silhouettes (p 9), a laminated chandelier (p. 72), decoupage plates (p.134), placemats (p. 215) and stitched note cards and envelopes (p. 306).

Mr. Montano even shows, with step-by-step instructions, how to make your own beautiful, personalized bound journal/notebook (p. 53).

Using this book as inspiration, I made a recycled rolled-book basket (p. 281) that I donated to my local library for their “monthly auction” -- it’s a fundraiser to help pay for a new, larger location and I thought that it would be a creative way to show my support.

Fantastic projects for the experienced crafter. I've made the popsicle stick basket and notebooks as gifts and they have gone over extremely well!

"Staff Pick" by ,

The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is a great book to give and a great source-book for making gifts. You'll think twice about donating your treasures to the Goodwill,  just as you'll pause before buying something new. From frames to furniture to jewelry, lampshades, bound books, window treatments, and Warhol-inspired extravaganzas, the fun will never end. Open this book to an avenue of adventure as you reuse, reduce, recycle, and rejoice.
