My soon-to-be 12-year-old daughter spent a lot of time last summer making friendship bracelets. So when I saw this adorable Friendship Bracelet kit on Eighteen25, I knew I had to make her one!
I started out with the following supplies:
A craft organizer (Hobby Lobby for $1.99).
A pack of embroidery floss. I found this one at Hobby Lobby for $16.99-check out all the great colors!
(I used a 40% off coupon-of course!) This one came with flat white plastic floss bobbins.
Using some cute scrapbook paper, a small 6 x 9 clipboard,
some ribbon and my laminator. I embellished the clipboard
for holding the string together while making the bracelet.
For the details on the how to, head over to Eighteen25 and download the tag there.
After I used up all the white plastic bobbins that came with the floss,
I headed out to Hobby Lobby to get more and found these adorable printed ones!
$1.99 for 50! I love the color contrasting.
This took some time, wrapping the floss around the bobbins.
But it looks so pretty in the box and will help Sid when she makes her friendship bracelets.
I added a thread cutter to the box. No need for scissors (and now it's friendly for an airplane ride!)
Time to get busy!
I'm sure you have someone in your life that will like this just as much as Sidney will!
