Review
Gr 7-10 –Well-written craft books are always welcome, and this addition to the do-it-yourself shelves has attractive illustrations and interesting projects. The conversational introduction emphasizes creativity and individuality and encourages teens who don't think of themselves as "crafty" to go for it. The last page contains a fairly extensive list of craft-supply stores and sites. Three sections of projects–"Gifty Girl," "Dress It Up!" and "Decor Diva"–include such items as body-care products, ideas for recycling old jeans, and decorating lamps. Each activity includes a list of supplies and step-by-step instructions. Throughout, there is an emphasis on safety. Photographs of the finished projects are integrated with cartoons of girls making and enjoying the activities. Both the illustrations and sorbet-hued palette are retro-inspired.–Genevieve Gallagher, Orange County Public Library, VA --Genevieve Gallagher (Reviewed July 1, 2003) (School Library Journal, vol 49, issue 7, p136)
