VIDEO TUTORIAL: Webster's Pages Charms & Kidcrafts!

 
I thought I would do a fun little project today!  My girls love to craft and one of their favorite things to do is make friendship bracelets.  So I thought I would share a fun little project today using Websters Pages metal charms (I used the Nautical Frame and Dome from the Our Travels collection) and patterned paper from Growing Up Girl (Honor Yourself).
 
 
I thought it would be easier to follow along how I made this bracelet by sharing a quick little video with you all (this one is a LOT shorter than my usual videos :) ....
 


I show a sliding square knot enclosure on this video but it is hard to follow when seeing it done with some light DMC thread so HERE is a link on how to do the sliding knot that is a little easier to follow.

 
Here is a close-up of the charm I made using the Websters Pages paper and the metal charm.  I cut an extra floral paper circle out that I layed in the charm frame, faced down, so that if the charm flips over (which often happens with charm bracelets), the backside will look pretty as well.
 
 
Here's a photo of my daughter wearing her new bracelet.  My youngest got one look at the bracelet and announced she needs one as well, so I'll let her pick her favorite color and we'll be making another one :)

 
I hope you enjoyed my kid craft project and hope that I have inspired you to have a little fun family time with your kiddies!

Where did you buy the beads? I love in Ontario so I'm hoping its Fabricland! Rebeccacell@gmail.com

Hi Rebecca,....not sure there is a Fabricland in Cambridge anymore, the one on the Main strip closed down a few years back....I got the bead trim off the roll from Lens Mills in Cambridge (really inexpensive) :)
