Wonderful Cat Morley and Tom Waddington of Cut Out + Keep set off around the USA, visiting the 50 states following tips and recommendations from visitors of their site to travel, taste, experience the distinctive history and culture of each state and create a project for each and every one.
Here's how Cat describes the extraordinary experience: "We asked for your suggestions, we slept in quirky motels, we ate gigantic portions of local food and we drove from coast to coast in America to see all 50 states, stopping at off-beat, crazy and crafty sites along the way. Inspired by our travels, we tuned our adventures into a book with 50 step-by step tutorials to make a souvenir for each state.
Make a pair of Ruby Red Shoes for Kansas, a Licence Plate Notebook for Michigan, Hollywood Lampshade for California and bake a batch of UFO Cake Pops for New Mexico."

In order to celebrate the release of the book, Cat generously shared a bottle cap ring tutorial, so come back later to see it.
Cat Morley started Cut Out + Keep as her craft blog while still at university.In 2007, with her partner Tom Waddington, she turned the blog into a community website (www.cutoutandkeep.net) to which any member can submit craft projects. The website receives a million of visitors a month and now keeps them both busy full time.
