instacraft

Alison Caporimo, a writer with a love of crafts, reading, tea and talking about London, recently put together a fun full-color book with 50 simple projects called InstaCraft.

You’ll find gifts, decor and more inside the pages of this book.

From seasoned crafters to first-time endeavors, this book offers something for everyone.

I liked that the projects use simple, easy-to-find things (some that you probably already have on hand.)

She offers some ideas for “One-Second Stamps) using regular house-hold items to create some unique stamps like cotton swabs for polka dots, rotelle pasta for a circle or wheel, and the bottom of a lighter for a fun retro print.

I also loved her idea for “Memory Wrapping Paper,” by photocopying photos onto a sheet of paper and wrapping a gift for someone special. I think that i just the coolest idea!

From brick book ends to bobby-pin coasters, you’ll find a great selection of craft ideas in this book from Ulysses Press.
