Beer Crafts: Making the Most of Your Cans, Bottle Caps, and Labels

    By

    While author and crafter extraordinaire Shawn Bowman would like to think she came up with the idea on her own, inspiration really came from her eight-year-old daughter, who spent a summer obsessed with making jewellery out of her parents' discarded bottle caps. Finding the note on her desk, "My crafting involves you to open a beer," the author had what can only be called an epiphany: "ALL crafting should involve me opening a beer." She raised her daughter's allowance, and set down to writing this book. But first, she opened a beer. Beer Crafts shows you how to repurpose not just the caps but also labels, bottles, and even cans into useful, hip, and quirky items--from attention-getting if not downright sexy garter belts to the classic crochet beer can hat, to beer bottle tags, to refrigerator magnets, and more. The projects are super fun, easy to make even for a first-time crafter, and most of the supplies are things you probably already have on hand or chilling in the fridge.
