Do you remember sitting in your backyard as a kid making those little string bracelets for all your BFFs? By the 4th of July, my wrists would be a tangle of bright colored braids from swapping these sweet little tokens of friendship. Well, I vote that we bring back the trend and make all our favorite buds some friendship bracelets to show our love. While perusing Pinterest (story of my life) I came across this cute craft idea.
Turn some simple string into something meaningful…for practically no money.
What you’ll need:
- Colored string
- Card stock
- A pen
- A hole puncher
How you jazz up the standard friendship bracelet:
Now, I’ve never been a person who could get a handle on all those intricate chevron bracelet patterns. Mine were always simply, straightforward braids. If you have the skills to go all out, by all means do so. If you’re like me, your humble braids will still look awesome. Grab your card stock, cut it into a cute shape, then write a personal note. Take your hole punchers and make two punches — one on either side of the card. Weave your bracelet through the holes, and voila! A thoughtful throwback to nights of catching fireflies and licking melting ice cream cones everyone will love.
