Win a pair of craft books by Super+Super

7 June 2015 44 Comments

Hot on the heels of their publishing debut with Printmaking and Embroidery, Brighton crafters Super+Super have released another pair of books with original projects on Crochet and Paper Cutting. And we have one of each to give away!

Super + Super crochet craft book

The Super+Super series, created by Claire Culley and Amy Phipps, centres on the idea of crafting with friends, with tutorials to help creatives of all levels inject originality into their wardrobe, home décor and gifting repertoire.

Super + Super paper cutting craft book

Crochet and Paper Cutting each contain 20 illustrated tutorials showing readers how to create items such as tablet and phone cases, a wine holder, birthday cake toppers, bunting and garlands and much more using widely-available materials.

Our favourites are the colourful crochet necklace, stool cover and vintage fruit bag. And the paper masks are bound to go down a treat at weddings or any event where there’s an opportunity for photobooth fun.

Each project is fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions, a list of all the tools you’ll need and techniques that are described in detail.

Style blogger Claire Culley and crafter Amy Phipps run regular craft classes and events including vintage tea parties, speed dating and swap shops in venues around Brighton.

For your chance to win the pair of books, simply comment below telling us which craft you enjoy the most or you’ve always wanted to try.

    I normally do crochet, knitting and sewing, I do like the look of the crochet book as this would give me some fresh ideas and at the moment I do need them.

    Saying that I have never done any paper crafting and I like the look of the paper book, it would be nice to try something new.

    Hopefully I do win as I would make good use of both books. 😀

    I love making cards. Stems from our next-door neighbour who gave me loads of card/cutouts and coloured envelopes when she wasn’t able to carry on due to health issues. It’s so relaxing too, something you can pick up and leave when you want. Currently on snowman and Frozen-type stuff for Christmas for some younger friends.
