Making Wonderland…

18 Jul

When Quadrille Publishing offered their Twitter followers a chance to procure a review copy of a soon-to-be-released craft book “Everything Alice”, I, being the crafty fox that I am, jumped at the chance and before you could shout “Off with their heads!” had my very own copy ready to be thoroughly leafed through and drooled over.

As far as ideas go, stylist and illustrator, Hannah Read-Baldrey, and art-director and designer, Christine Leech, hit on the perfect idea – a craft and recipe book based around Alice in Wonderland. This book could very easily have been a god-send when I was at university due to the amount of Alice in Wondlerand themed parties I was invited to! Saying that, I’m quite sure there will be many more Alice themed parties to come in my life, knowing my friends!

In terms of the projects inside the book, I’m not kidding when I said the book would be drooled over (okay, maybe not literally but you know what I mean.) Every single craft project Christine and Hannah have come up with is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. Never before have I wanted to make everything in a craft book! From easy things you can do with small children, like the dress-up dolls, to more complicated projects like the Everything Alice puppet theatre below (which I would say is just as perfect for a fun adult evening party in the summer as it is a children’s birthday party), there really is something for everyone to make and enjoy making!

In my humble opinion, you should definitely invest in this book. My sister has already told me she wants this book (I did lend it to her and got it back, thankfully) and I might just surprise her with a copy at some point but shhhhhh, don’t tell her I said so! Hehe. I’m sad I didn’t get to go to the launch party a couple of weeks ago but will definitely be creating my own Wonderland soon…any excuse for a party, huh?

Be sure to look back here on Friday, I have a super special giveaway that I’m sure you won’t want to miss out on!
