A stylish craft book gets even more stylish.

When we were kids, we made "lanyards" with plastic cord that was skinny, flat, and, frankly, pretty persnickety to work with. Then, six years ago, we discovered the modern version, called scoubidou ("skoo-bee-doo"). Round, hollow, pliable, and super cooperative - it was the stuff of a perfect Klutz book. So we wrote one. Now, more than 250,000 copies later, we're ready for another upgrade - a scoubi redo, if you will.

The content hasn't changed: Scoubidou still shows beautiful ways to braid, weave, and knot the included cord. Illustrated instructions guide every step to making key chains, ponytail holders, fancified flip-flops, five different kinds of bracelets, the classic lifeguard lanyard and more. Finish your projects with the included assortment of lanyard clips, key rings, and brilliant beads.

This new edition still comes with 120 feet of cord, enough to make all 12 projects. But we've updated our colors, brightening the orange and pink and setting them off with girl-approved, stylish black scoubi. The whole package has been convertedto our stackable, wrappable, boxy packaging and topped with a fresh new cover. Turns out you can improve on perfection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent In the perspective of somebody who has made bracelets often and experimented with multiple types of string, this book is very well written and the tutorials are very clear. It not only gives you tutorials on how to make bracelets, but tutorials on how to decorate your flip flops, pens, lip balms, and create your own lanyard. It is an excellent book choice for somebody who loves gimp and wants to experiment more with different types of plastic lace!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fun This book and activity kit comes with everything you need to complete 14 amazing projects. But to be honest it is just a jumping off point. Once you have learned the basics you can buy your own supplies and you and your children will be doing fun crafts and activities for years to come. What you get: Beads: small beads, big beads, toggle beads and pony beads Scoubidou Lanyard clips Key Rings Instruction book with built in ruler The book comes out of the supplies case and can be kept separately while working on the projects, and then stored once those included are completed. The sections in the book are: Bracelet Basics Zippy Wristbands Lacy Bracelet Fancified Flip-Flops Celtic Knot Wristband Wrapped Pen Pen leash Spiral Bracelet Loopy Hair Elastic Loop de Loopy Hair Elastic Woven Whatzit Toggle Bracelet Classic Lifeguard Lanyard Wrist Lanyard The book also has a history of Scoubidou, hollow tube-like plastic cord, to a song and musician in the late 1950's. It is very different from gymp (gimp) which is a flat cord. It is a great kit and sure to be a favorite. It will definitely provide hours of fun.
