    What sort of craft were you looking for? "The Pop-Up Book" by Paul Jackson comes thoroughly recommended by me I learnt all of my pop-up techniques from that book.
    Pop Up Zoo Greetings cards - Raising money for Sands in memory of my precious son Ben Folksy Shop, Facebook Page, You Tube
    Carol's Yummy Bakes - My new business Website, Facebook Page

      Wow i just searched pop up book that stuff looks amazing but very hard to do

      I found a erm thing earlier you use foam clay for it and that looked fun to do so i might look into that

      But i also thought it would be fun to try to make glass painting and the foam clay

      I used to enjoy doing stuff with hama beads

        I was given a copy of Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts an A-Z guide with detailed instructions and endless inspiration as a gift last year. Its a big hardback book and was bought in Smiths so should be easy enough to find.

        It covers Albums, scrapbooks etc, beading, block printing, botanical pressing and printing, calligraphy, candle making,clay,decoupage,etching glass, fabric flowers,gilding,glittering,jewellery making, marbling,matting and framing, mosaics, nature crafts, origami and paper folding, painting china and glass, paper cutting and punch art, paper flowers and birds, pom pom crafts, quilling, rope crafts, rubber stamping, silk screening, soap making, tin punching, wirework and wreaths.

        It has instructions and project ideas too and from what I can see it makes for an all round good crafts taster...
