This book was SO MUCH FUN!!!
I love using paper for scrap booking and making cards, but now I have new earrings, a purse and I'm in the process of making my daughter Indi her name all done up in colorful paper.
Speaking of Indi, she's the one who helped me make my new PAPER purse. According to Miss Diva herself, "this book is easy".
I know it's says for ages 9-13, but I'm well over that and I still had fun folding and gluing....I got to put to use lots of my old magazines laying around.
You would think some of the things in the book were made differently, I mean they look so professional.....But once you get going yours look just as good....Even better because YOU did it.

I recommend this book for all the families that want to make some really awesome things with all that left over paper....Lets be ECO friendly this summer and let the kids have fun!!!
