George Lucas has just released his version of "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" in 3D, but c'mon--the guy believes Greedo shot first. Why not make your own little Star Wars universe?
For around $20 or less, supplies from your local arts and crafts supplies store can put you well on your way toward creating your own Star Wars-themed puppets, cat toys, tissue box covers, flower vases, and more. In the first of a Crave series based on projects from Bonnie Burton's "The Star Wars Craft Book", a crack team of crafters fights the power and turns paper bags into the Rebel Alliance's Admiral Ackbar. It's a sack!
