My YW and I made these bracelets a few months ago to give at New Beginnings, but they would be a super easy craft for girls camp too!
We wanted the bracelets to have a message to tie in with this year's mutual theme so the girls chose to have them say "find the courage within."
Ribbon-YW value colors
Label Maker with tape
Lighter (to melt the ribbon ends)
This ribbon bracelet was adapted from a bracelet on I Never Grew Up. She has a tutorial.
I had a hard time finding ribbon with the YW colors. There was rainbow ribbon, but I spent a summer in San Francisco and did not the girls running around giving the wrong idea (the rainbow is the universal sign for gay). I took creative license and bought a ribbon that had most of the colors and then bought a brad that filled in the missing colors (Purple, Sparkles used for gold). I liked the extra bling the brad added.
Then, we just printed the saying on labels and stuck them on the inside of the ribbon bracelet. We had to trim them a little to get them to fit just right.
Easy peasy, economical, cute!
I got my ribbon in the Robert's Craft gift wrap section. The brads were from Robert's too.
