Friendship Bracelet Kit

Friendship bracelets are everywhere in blog-land and if you're a child of the 80s (like I am), I bet you couldn't be happier about that!  I decided to pass on the fun to some tweens I love (who I thought might enjoy crafting a bracelet or two of their own).  Each kit contained embroidery floss, a small scissors, a few safety pins (you have to attach them to your jeans somehow right?), instructions, and candy (for a treat while you work).

The instruction sheet I made used these directions from Life In Style.  I also included the links for tutorials from Design Mom, Honestly...WTF, Squidoo, and The Creative Mama.  Lots of different options...and lots of different colors to choose from (so pretty)!

I purchased all the supplies I needed at Michael's, but you could find everything at any craft store (or possibly even a big box store with a crafts section).  I love that everything you need is contained in this small container...perfect to take on a road trip, to a sleepover or throw in your backpack.  I have a feeling this may become my go-to birthday gift for the 7-13 year old set!

Cool! I have tons of embroidery floss, but never once thought of having Norah make some!! I was all about those in the 80's!!!

Is it bad that when I saw those come back I wanted to make one immediately and then I peeked at the tutorials and it didn't even seem right to me...I had no clue how the heck I made billions of those things!!! I bet I still have some of that embroidery floss at my parents....but they are so fun!

What a cute idea, Heather! I always struggle with gift ideas for this age group. I have a few girls this would be perfect for. Thanks for the idea!
