The Guide to Teen Craft Projects claims to "engage in the hottest DIY way of life" and with advice from the hip librarians, you can learn a variety of classic craft projects. This book is more traditional than the other craft books we review, with crafts like collage and pressing leaves.
There are the obvious classics, like picture marbles and vinyl totes, but I particularly love the Woven Paper Baskets which are a great way of repurposing old magazines and providing some handy storage. Aiming for low-cost projects that recycle and repurpose unwanted materials, the book includes a dozen step-by-step projects for you to try at home.
You can pick up a copy from the American Library Association now.
