"Summer Social" Guest Project — Make Friendship Bracelet Kits {with free printable}

17 Aug
Jennifer, Jamie and Jodie here from the blog eighteen25!!
We are so happy Jen invited us to participate in her Summer Social event.
We have a fun project to share with you today and it would also make a really cute gift for all the girlies in your life.

friendship bracelet kits

back in june, we took a trip to the craft store to pick up the stuff for friendship bracelet kits and since then, the girls have spent several hours making colorful knotted bracelets for everyone they know. 

to make a kit to keep or give as a gift, you’ll need:

  • a DMC craft organizer (ours came with plastic floss bobbins)
  • a pack or two of embroidery floss
  • a small clipboard (6×9)
  • large elastic (to wrap around the box)
  • tag download

we covered our clipboard with some patterned paper and the friendship bracelet kit tag.

and in case you were wondering what the clipboards were for…
they hold your thread while your knotting.

so whether you have a little time left before school starts or you’ve already sent the kids back…

 get your kids hooked on making these and they can give friendship bracelets to all their new school friends!!
 {if you’re new to making friendship bracelets… this website will help get you started.}
