I was very excited to purchase the book as I am an avid crafter and homeschooler. The book is beautiful, well laid out and explained well. The disappointment though lies in the crafts. With a 365 day craft book I expected to receive a very varied collection of crafts that would be unique. Unfortunately the book consists of about 7 crafts (plush, cupcake topper, garland, card, gift tag, .... see I can't even think of more) done OVER and OVER and OVER again with different shapes. You will basically see how to take the same fox shape (for example) and put it onto all of those things, each one counting for a day. Then you'll see how to put a kitten shape on all of those things... and on it goes.

I'm super disappointed and feel like I wasted my $25. I would have saved a lot of money and found myself much more inspired by spending 20 minutes on Pinterest.

I'll give it 2 stars because it is beautiful and will look nice on my craft room shelf but as for content it would achieve one star.

I'm sending my book back. It's misleading. It's not actually a different craft to make everyday. It's one craft, lets say a paper penguin. Day one, cut out paper penguin, day two, paste Popsicle stick on your paper penguin. Day three glue a magnet on back of your paper penguin. It's a lame book. Save your money!

Disappointing, boring - I was led to believe by a magazine review that this was "fun filled w/craft projects of all ages". NOT! They're not even different each day - one theme goes on for almost a week. For small kids only - very limited projects and ideas.

One craft concept per day of the week (cake topper, garland, card, etc) - and each week a new, simple theme (cat, heart, dots). This is far from being creative, and i would be surprised to see any kids wanting to do the same 7 craft projects all year long. Even stylistically, it's all based on very simple paper cutout shapes. I had expected true inspiration - even 365 unique ideas - but our family could come up with the 7 core craft concepts of this book in one rainy afternoon. This is a waste of money and going back immediately.

The book's description leads the reader to believe there were 365 distinct crafts, one for each day of the year.
This is simply not so. There are actually only several individual crafts with many variations to make up the stated number. In this case this is neither 365 crafts nor is it worth the price. I am returning this purchase.

The book is gorgeous. The photography is beautiful and the instructions are clear. But it's boring. Each week has a theme, like snowflakes or butterflies. There is a page of patterns (mostly the same shape in different sizes). There are about 10 different types of projects repeated through the whole book, just with a different theme. These include cake toppers, cards, wall art, felt ornaments or plush toys, stick cards, headbands, onesies, bags, and garlands. None of the projects are very unique. I got it for my 7 yo daughter who loves to make crafts, but I'm going to return it and find something different. This isn't worth the money!

My daughter is doing a pre- school program with her three year old. These crafts are easily accommodated to the young set. They can also be used by any age.
I like that the direction s are clear and the supply list is succinct. The projects yield sleek but cute items. Templates are provided. ( I hate when directions include the statement "draw a .....". If I could draw, I wouldn't need so many directions.). So the book is fun, helpful, and has cute crafts. What could be better?

Format: Hardcover
This book is not worth buying. There are seven or eight really stupid ideas for using 52 templates provided in the book. A very small number of the templates are interesting--fox and gnome are two. Most are just ridiculous--circle, square, raindrop, cloud. Then she uses pretty much the exact same craft ideas for each template--barrette, template on a stick, greeting card, cupcake topper, felt ornament. Over and over and over. Do not buy this $25 book. You have nobody to rip off but yourself. If you MUST, check it out of the library.
