Ah - tis that time of year again. Time for me to get crafty and do my bit for the school Christmas fair. I can't bake, I'm no good at organising things and I'm really rubbish at dealing with small people but I can get a little creative when required and make things. So I do what I do best - make bracelets.
Pick a colour, any colour!
Rather than just throwing a batch of bracelets over to the school, I took it a little further by trying to make them look a little bit more interesting. I decided to go with a "Frozen" theme as I hear it's popular with the small people and also something a little Christmassy for those not so enamoured with the film and printed some little phrases on cards to accompany the bracelets.
For the blue & white bracelets, I sourced some little gummy bracelets from Ebay and added little crystal beads to them. I then created little cards to set them off with some choice "Frozen" quotes ....
The Frozen Collection
And I know blue isn't the most popular colour ever amongst young girls so I did some slightly more girly ones with the stickers of Elsa and the Frozen crew on them. These are little cotton cord friendship bracelets which you pull to adjust to size.
The Elsa & Anna Collection
And for the Christmassy collection.
The Christmassy Collection (You do know I am making these names up as I don't you?).
And then I popped them in to little cellophane sleeve to finish them off and make them easier to handle for selling ....
The snowflake & present sequins used to decorate the little cards were a lucky find and were actually sold as table toppers which are normally used for scattering on tables at events. I picked these up whilst I was having a little mosey through the pound shop.
And just by chance, I also happened upon a little pack of "Frozen" stickers at the same time.
I think the bracelets were quite well received ... especially by the parents who were relieved to see something other than the usual tatty teddies and unwanted toiletries donations ;o)
Last Note :
- I've popped a few new bracelets in the shop just incase anyone needs any last minute stocking fillers as I've had a few enquiries about some of the ones I've featured on Instagram. Happy browsing!
- I've not actually watched Frozen .... yet.
