It was a happy mail day at my house when Microcrafts arrived earlier this week! Just released this week from Quirk Books and compiled by Margaret McGuire, Alicia Kachmar and Katie Hatz, Microcrafts is an adorable collection of twenty-five teeny tiny (and totally cute!) crafts to create. The projects are all suitable for beginners, come together quickly, and require very little materials - the perfect way to use up even the tiniest scraps of paper, fabric and clay.
Sawyer loved going through the book with me (in fact, he stole it away and took it to bed with him one night!), and he has already claimed that this sweet puppy will be my next project.
If I have MY way, this project will be next on my list. This lovely pendant would be perfect for my ever-growing collection of felt scraps, and it even has a tiny pocket in the back to hold a photo!
I can't get over the amazing creativity behind their incredible miniature taxidermy projects - so unique and fun!
Teensy weensy kitties make the most miniscule scraps come alive!
I whipped up this cute little version of the Tom Thumb card for our fall nature table. It is a mere 1.5" x 1.75" tall - his little head is a circle from a standard hole punch! I am sure that we will make the Red Riding Hood and Hansel & Gretel cards too since they were so easy to make and they look totally adorable :)
I can't wait to try out some more of these projects! I honestly have never been more excited by a craft book because this is the first time I have wanted to make EVERYTHING in it! The fact that numerous designers contributed to the book add to its appeal and variety, and there are even instructions for how to turn your minature creations into magnets and jewelry (perfect for holiday gift giving!). Pick up your own copy of Microcrafts today, and I promise you won't be disappointed!
