With 430 pages of crafting fun and 52 fabulous themes, ‘Craft-a-day’ more than lives up to its title: you’ll be staging full-scale craft-a-thons in no time. Who wouldn’t love a different craft project for every day of the year!

Craft-a-Day is an easy jumping off point for beginner crafters or non-crafters who want to start getting creative. The book uses basic materials and techniques that you can build on later.

The excellent thing about this book is that it provides a new pattern for every week of the year. Yes, the projects repeat, but the simplicity of the patterns means you can easily make more than one project. I made several owl cards and gift tags and now have cute homemade additions on hand for Fall birthdays.

I disagree with the previous reviews- I think the briliance of the book is the simplicity of the concepts. Simple is BETTER :)

I was very disappointed by this book. It just repeats the same crafts with different themes. Putting on shape on the end of a toothpick and using it as a cupcake topper is not a different craft because you did it with a fish one week and a bird another time. Also, the crafts are very basic. I didn't find anything here that inspired me at all.

I agree with LZLibrary. This book disappointed me because it repeated the same craft projects over and over again just with a different shape or animal on them (greeting card, paper attached to a toothpick (for sticking into a cupcake), flat felt ornament, ipod case, etc. So really there were about 10 types of crafts in all. I think even children would get fed up. There's nothing in here for adults.

If you are expecting a different craft every day, you will be disappointed. Each week has a theme (fireworks! snowmen! turtles! ornaments!) and then you get 7 days of crafts on that theme, but many of the crafts are the same. I don't know about you, but I don't need to make cupcake toppers or gift tags every single week. Some fine ideas here, but mostly a disappointment.
