Steph Hung and Erin Jang drop by to show off their beautiful new craft book, complete with everything you need to make presents by hand for the holidays!
About Make & Give:
A design-savvy craft book with 35 cute, simple projects that celebrate the people we love in the everyday moments.
This is a book of 35 simple, modern craft projects to make any day special for the people we love. A handmade gift—even the smallest and simplest of gestures—brings a smile and makes a moment more meaningful. Any day, not just holidays and specific occasions, is an opportunity to create and gift. These versatile projects require no special skills and work for a range of people—from children to house guests—and occasions.
Visually driven in its presentation, Make and Give stands apart from the traditional craft book with its bright colors and modern, graphic look. Each project is illustrated with step-by-step photographs, charts, and unique infographics. Less text, more photos, and illustrated designs guide the reader.
The projects are inspired by the things the authors—designers and crafters by trade—make for their own friends and family. The book includes the authors’ personal inspiration for each project, as well as “Make This For” tips to encourage readers to think about the special people for whom they could make these crafts.
“Make & Give is fun, approachable, and upbeat. It’s chock-full of clever (and affordable!)
projects that prove just how exciting and easy do-it-yourself gifts can be.”
—Grace Bonney, author of Design*Sponge at Home
