I am a published Author of the following books: The Distortion, Alien and the Cheese:Never Mind the Grill; The Monkey Palace. I married my husband 10 years ago and have 3 wonderful sons. I have always enjoyed doing crafts of all types and so now I enjoy learning Victorian crafts, needlework, scrapbooking, doll making and so much more.
I would have to say that this title belongs to a book by Madeline Arendt called "Altered Art for the First Time." It comes in a hardback. I first saw this book in my local library and knew that this was a book I needed and wanted in my craft book collection. She has so many clever ways to "re-use" and alter every day items. I will post a few of her pics from her book. They are her projects and the book includes directions. This is a 5 star book. The ISBN# is: 1-4027-1655-9. She alters tags, flash cards, books, mint boxes, matchbooks, dictionary's and much more. You won't be disappointed by this book.
