The title is a little suspicious – I don't see anything particularly crafty about it – but it's an attractive "gift bible" or "diary bible". There are no in-text features or unique learning materials, just a lush fabric cover (in two designs), 2 ribbon marks, and ornate edges. (When the Bible is open flat so that the pages are slightly fanned out, butterflies appear!) The main feature is wide, slightly drawn margins on each page for doodles, notes, reflections, etc. I personally like this open approach better than the lush, flower- and butterfly-heavy Bibles that were so prominent two years ago. For NIV readers, this could be a nice gift option for the girl who likes to think about her own thoughts without being asked.
