Most disappointing is that you must go to the Chronicle web site to find and print out the project templates. What a lot of bother that it is.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Each project contains a finished photo of the project, line art illustrations of the steps involved and some suggestions for adding creative details. The illustrations are fairly functional but far too small (small text and pictures are a common gripe I have with Chronicle Books titles in general). The accompanying written directions are simple and straightforward.
Some of the projects included in this book are: paper flag banners, giant paper flowers, pinwheels, wrapped candle holders, book covers, mustache drink toppers (very cute), paper silhouette portraits and a bird mobile. Some projects include templates that are available through the Chronicle Books website, so you'll need a printer. If you're an active crafter, you will probably have most of the supplies on hand already.
All in all, a great book for those who value having and giving things homemade. Recommended.
