    A thoughtful book full of interesting ideas for repurposing materials. The focus of the book is wrapping gifts attractively but the creative ideas will spill over to other projects. Many of them have the "why haven't I done this" feel before--my favorite being using fusible web to attach small pieces of ribbon to each other! Why haven't I done that before? Besides being excited to de-stash my odds and ends of ribbon, I also look forward to gluing/stitching greeting cards together for displays. The author has a website if you are interested in more ideas!
