Many of us love to make cards, invitations, and pictures. Often though, we feel that our creations, though attractive, need a little something else. They are flat and we can't help wishing that we knew of some way to jazz them up a little. Well, there is one way to make them look really special – to turn them into three dimensional creations. All you need to be able to do this is some art, some foam strips or squares, and a few other bits and pieces and you are off.

In this kit you will find everything you need to make a wide selection of three dimensional crafts. There are sheets of punch-out art, card, foam squares and strips, colored string, and jewels. The projects that you can make include cards of all kinds, gift tags, photograph frames, pictures, mobiles, and much more besides. To help you on your journey the kit includes a book full of project ideas and instructions. The instructions are easy to follow and photographs show crafters what each of the completed projects will look like.

The process of making three dimensional art is relatively easy and the effect is sure to delight crafters who are looking for something new. Once they have mastered the basics, young crafters will find all kinds of ways to make beautiful and interesting three dimensional creations.
