Just for teen girls who know what's smart and fashionable: the first in a funky, fun new series of crafts books, written by the spokesperson for Target.

Stylish gals who want to look as if they've stepped right out of a teen magazine--without spending a lot-will go mad for these absolutely fabulous pieces. Quickly, easily, and (best of all) inexpensively, 12-16 year olds will create more than 60 attractive bracelets, pretty necklaces, earrings, and hair accessories from dollar store items and ordinary stuff that's lying around the house. Most can be completed within half-an-hour, and for less than $15. With a little clever crafting, simple ribbon transforms into Fancy Chokers and Wrap Bangles. Dad's old tie can become a trendy polka-dot belt that looks just like the ones that cost $25 at a boutique. Chic silk flowers adorn fringy headbands or Hawaiian ankle bracelets. Mom's vintage earrings work beautifully as pins or shoe ornaments. Every project's great fun to make, wear, or even sell for pocket money at a crafts fair.

Jill Williams Grover is a talented artist and interior decorator with a flair for finding inexpensive items and turning them into extraordinary pieces. In addition to having published several books with Sterling/Chapelle, Jill is a spokesperson for Target and appears regularly on TV.
