Recycled bottling and green gift-giving ideas round out this stylish how-to manual for the DIY generation.

I absolutely love this book... it is probably one of the books I order most from the library! If you like making easy, but fun crafts that can be used or given as gifts, this book is for you! There is even a section at the end with a ton of gift basket ideas! I recommend it to everyone! *** If you liked this book, you will love the book "Natural Beauty at Home", written by Lauren's mother, Janice Cox. These two, plus Lauren's sister Marie, have taught me literally everything I know about making my own beauty products! Thanks, guys!!
