I am reviewing a crafts book today. Make a card awesome! A step-by-step guide to creative card making techniques(Green Crafts) by Mahe Zehra Husain.
Blurb: Have you ever wanted to give a handmade card to the people you love? There are numerous occasions throughout the year when a little handmade love goes a long way. We’re talking about Birthdays, Anniversaries and Valentines. The birth of a baby, an opportunity to say you’re sorry or a job well done! These are all special moments that deserve to be celebrated with love – handmade love.

Make a card and save the world one card making project at a time. Join millions of other crafters from all over the world who are trying to do more with less and embark on the creative journey called ‘Green Crafting’.
My Review: For someone who loves to do craft projects this is great. Not only are their easy step-by-step instruction but video as well. I can tell a lot of hard work went into this. Who doesn’t like turning trash into treasure. There are great ways to make beautiful cards using all those paint sample cards you picked up in one of your decorating crazes. It so nice to find something to do with those instead of trashing them. One of my favorites was the circle cutout and monogram. I can see kids getting a kick out of making the one with buttons. This book would make a great birthday or mothers day gift. Let the kids make a card and then gift a book. Anyone who enjoys crafts should have a copy. I give this book a 5
