Book Review: MicroCrafts Teaches Tiny Treasures

Craft Ideas Books, journals and art books

I It’s been a while since I’ve done a book review, but this one is interesting. It just came out last week: ‘Microcrafts’ by  Margaret McGuire, Alicia Kachmar, Katie Hatz and Friends. It is published by a wonderful publisher, Quirk Books, who only seem to feature titles that I like, love or that at least intrigue me. Worth checking out.

Darling ideas in the book includes the concepts of ‘Tiny Treasures’ and ‘Make and Share’.  Wonderfully illustrated concept pages inspire and are matched with simple Howto’s.

Learn How To Make Tiny Cupcake Charms

The 25 miniature crafts are contributed by several talented designers, which adds variety to the types of jewelry and other projects in the book.

Who’s the Book For?

The crafts in this book will inspire a crafty household and the result will be lots of whimsy in every room. However, don’t keep it all for yourself. Most projects would deliver delightful gifts (… oh how wonderful to be ready early this Christmas….)

Eco-Green Crafts, for Kids

One obvious benefit in making micro-CRAFTS is that it’s a great way to recycle and repurpose your scraps of fabric and other tiny things. Furthermore, miniature craft projects make great doll accessories too. (Which doll would not want some cupcakes for tea?)

The Verdict about the Book

As it’s nicely illustrated, it makes for a fun coffee table book too. It retails at $16.95 at It’s worth buying at this price, but I have it here at Amazon for $8-10. Buy Your Copy Today: Microcrafts: Tiny Treasures to Make and Share (Amazon affiliate link / click link for more).
