I originally found Crafting with Buttons and Ribbons at a local Michael's store but in all honesty it was too expensive to buy. I was very pleased to be able to purchase an e-book copy at a much better price and it is almost as good as having the book itself. The only reason I chose 4 stars is that it is a bit harder to work with an electronic version but the on-screen quality is great. The main reason I chose the e-book version was the ability to download it immediately rather than having to wait to receive the book in the mail. The projects are lovely, beautifully photographed and the instructions are terrific. I definitely recommend this book whether e-book or paper.
