A sleepover with your BFFs, summer vacations with your girlfriends, or a lazy Sunday with your female cousins. Spice up the party making these cute crafts. Not only will you be making memories, but towards the end of the activity, each of you will have a memento that would have marked this time spent together.
Some of these craft projects do not require you to have any special skills or buy a lot of expensive materials.
Girls, since you will be making stuff like jewelry from paper and beads, homemade stationery and crafts made with fabrics, wood, or paper, and scrap books and journals out of old and rustic books, you need not buy stuff specially for this activity.
Here is a selection of some simple crafts to get you started.
Mini Decorative Journal
6-inch-square spiral notebook
½ inch wide purple ribbon
½ inch wide orange satin ribbon
Place the 6-inch spiral notebook on the work table and open the first page. Draw a ½ inch square at the two corners of the paper and cut out this squares. This should be done on all the pages of the journal with the help of a ruler and a crafts knife.
Now, tie the purple ribbon into bows around the cut layers at the two corners of the journal. Cut and glue the silver scrapbook paper so that it fits inside the back cover perfectly. Additionally, glue the last page of the tied pages into the back cover. Cut orange ribbon in half and glue it to the edge of the journal.
With the help of scissors, cut a square of light blue felt and also a smaller square of orange felt and glue it to the front of the journal. Make flowers from circles of blue felt and silver scrapbook paper and glue them with the paper daisies. The mini paper daisy journal is ready and it can now be filled with your precious thoughts and words.
Button Jewelry Box
A wooden jewelry box
Yellow wrapping paper
Silver wrapping paper
Assortment of colorful buttons
A paper punch
First, wrap the yellow wrapping paper all around the jewelry box and make sure that it is in place by applying glue. Next, punch round holes on the silver wrapping paper in a uniform fashion. Wrap this paper around the jewelry box.
This will give the jewelry box a yellow polka dotted pattern. Now draw a heart pattern on top of the jewelry box. Apply glue on the underside of the buttons and then stick them to the pattern that you have made. Use buttons of different colors and sizes to make beautiful jewelry boxes.
Glitter Hair Clips
Old snap-back hair clips
Glitter nail polish
Clear nail polish
Paint the snap-back hair clips with colored glitter nail polish. Let the nail paint dry. Do not try to touch your nails at this point, or you will leave fingerprints on them. When it dries, paint another coat of glitter nail polish over the first layer.
While the polish is still wet, you can sprinkle some glitter powder over the clips for some extra bling. Finally paint a coat of clear nail varnish over the clips afterward to seal in the glitter.
