    My Review:
    Awesome book with so much easy projects. The book covers is a big hit, the multitude of ways to decorate the book covers. The only thing I found so hard was choosing which duct tape because I found all different style and colors. The two pocket folder was pretty simple and works well with my many projects of papers I usually need to kept filed and organized. Fan-fold Bow I accomplished quite well, I made a bunch for a birthday party, pink & white polka dots. Step by step instructions and pictures to follow, especially if following instructions is not your things the pictures do justice. This book tells you the materials you need first to get whatever project you choose to tackle. The level of difficulty and time it takes is wonderful. Of course I started with the simple one first, level one 😀 My favorite one is the picture frames, I made frames to match the pictures. I will submit pictures at a later time, sorry. I received this book for review quite late because it got lost. I had to do some projects first before I can give my honest review of this book, which is so wonderful. I’m about to elicit my grandchildren to choose a project and see how it turns out so with that I will post the pictures of their projects as soon as I can. Thank you ZEST BOOKS for giving me the opportunity to review and blog this excellent project book, “Sticky Fingers DIY Duct Tape Projects.” Thank you, especially to Zest Books.
