Tiny Baubles

Disclaimer: While I was approached by the publishers and given a free copy of this book to review, all of the opinions below are my own. 

Microcrafts: Tiny Treasures to Make and Share is for people who can appreciate the little pleasures in life. The book, compiled by Margaret McGuire, Alicia Kachmar, Katie Hatz and Friends, contains twenty-five tutorials for miniature treasures (all smaller than a spool of thread.)

What’s great about this book is that since the projects are little, they’re perfect for all of those scraps that have been sitting around. Also, because of their size, they won’t take you long to complete.  There’s quite a bit of upcycling in this book, which is always a bonus to us “green” crafters.

Some of my favorite projects include:

Microcrafts is a fun book and even though the crafts are tiny, it’s clear that the heart behind this book is huge! So whip out your fine motor skills and sharp eye and get to work crafting your way to a miniature land of happiness!
