Adventure Time Crafts: Flippin' Adorable Stuff To Make From Land Of OOO

Cartoon Network and Chelsea Bloxsom have penned a book of  DIY  craft projects inspired  by the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time. This collaboration of crafts desiged by the fans of the show,  are the cutest crafts representing the land of OOO and it's characters: Marceline, Jake, and Gunter, just to name a few. Some of the projects range from easy to the more advanced. Like the bubblegum's like-like sweater, which you embellish a sweater that has already been made. The crafts range from earrings, bracelets, puppets complete with DIY stage, hats, nail art, etc. Each project comes with an introduction, list of items you will need, and steps complete with pictures. The book consists of four chapters: Total Toytopia, Bling-A-Ding-Ding, Rhombus Home Decor, and Geek Chic Fashion, with such eye-catching sub titles as: Shrink-a-Cow-Tastic Earrings,Oh my Glob, Nail Art.
In the back of the book you will find templates of the various projects and an index. What I like about this book is the crafts can be implemented by young as well as older crafters. They are very professional looking and it consists of something that someone would actually do. Like the bracelet and earrings. I would recommend this book to crafters of small child and to libraries.  A little bit about the author. Chelsea Bloxsom is a native of Boston. She is the founder of Love and Sandwich, where she makes plush stuff toys and embroidery hoops show casing  characters from movies and shows. Some of her work can be viewed at  http://www.tumblr.co

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review
