MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!!! Ok, I wait all year to say that! So today, in honor of “Star Wars Day” (May 4) I’m sharing a super-cool and cute book for Star Wars fans of all ages!
It’s The Star Wars Craft Book by Bonnie Burton, and this book has got it all- recycle crafts, n0-sew fabric crafts, sewing, crocheting, paper mache, even good-ol’ spray paint. First, let’s take a look at the book itself.
This is the blurb from Amazon.com:

(No midi-chlorians required!)
It’s a paper-back glue-bound book that has 176 glossy pages including templates and printables in the back of the book! You get a whopping 43 projects in all, and most don’t need any special techniques or materials. If you are a basic crafter, you’ll have most of the materials on-hand. Sweet!
On first glance (with my kids peering over my shoulder) we found lots of fun projects we’d like to try. Because I’m a glitter girl, the collage box spoke right. To. Me.
Finally though, we settled on the glass marble magnets! We would have tried the rings, too- except we didn’t have any ring blanks. (Really, how did htat happen? In my house ring blanks are like bread and milk. We always just have them on hand.)
And we used some bottle caps too!
So bottom line- this is super-cool book for any Star Wars crafty geek in your world. Great for kids and hipsters- and it’s been really reasonable on Amazon.com- under $14 bucks! So go grab a copy so you are ready for the next “Star Wars Day” and May the Fourth Be With YOU!!!!
