The Big-Ass Book of Crafts 2
By Mark Montano
Reviewed by Simone Collins
Mark Montano's newest book, Big-Ass Book of Crafts 2, is chock full of DIY projects for every genre of craft imaginable. Mark has really outdone himself with this book. It includes over 150 projects that will be inspiring to any crafter. This book is a feast for the eyes with bright colors and funky patterns. The 21 chapters inside cover everything from jewelry to kids crafts. And I just love Mark's ability to repurpose materials into amazingly useful crafts like the Cargo Pant Carry-All. Plus, there is an entire chapter on wiffle balls that will amaze you like the Wiffle Ball Night-Light Tower and Wiffle Ball Pencil Holder. The crafts in this book range from extremely easy to average but the easy to follow instructions make every one of them a can-do for crafters of any level. Some crafts, like the Snappy The Snail Pillow and Artists Clutch would make great projects for presents for your holiday gift list. And if you are not convinced yet that you need this book, there is a chapter solely on shoe crafts!
This book is the perfect gift for the special crafter in your life or for a special gift for yourself. You will not be disappointed.
