For ages 9 to 12 years. Kids choose from eight "almost-instant" styles: Make a simple spiral with craft-foam designs, a hole-punch style (with lace-ups!), a wrap around scrapbook with decorative papers, or an easy loose-ring binder that holds chunky treasures (like shells)! Create a friendship "buddy" book, a home-made post-bound design, a fabulous folder for art or photos, and an awesome accordion scrapbook. Kids design cool covers!: What's your style -- bold and bright, soft pastels, lacy and delicate, or far-out and funky? Go for colour with a bright felt design; create a denim cover from old jeans; make an old fashioned padded cover; paint a canvas cover masterpiece; decoupage a theme. Add a pocket surprise and a personalised padded photo frame. Sew on your name in yarn. Use natural finds (like leaf prints), around-the-house finds (like old "gems" from costume jewellery), and colourful papers to give your scrapbook pizzazz! Ages 9 to 12 years.
