Bottle cap charms

This is the second option we are doing at our girls camp this year. We are tying these bottle cap charms onto a chinese cord necklace and every year the girls can add to it, if they want. Or they can take this and attach it to their keychain or their scripture bag. Some of the older girls may not want to have jewelry like that, so there are other options. And it works out to being so inexpensive. The little alphabet letters were run through the printer on shrinky dink paper and then shrunk down and how cute they are. The sayings on the bottle caps were also printed on the printer, put into the bottle cap and then covered with crystal laquer. We punched holes into the bottle cap with the crop-a-dile. That thing punches through anything! Awesome.

This little paper bag booklet was one made a few years ago by a friend of mine, Tiffany, and myself for the girls to have while at girls camp. If you decide to make this with the girls, I suggest having the paper bag book already put together for them and letting them add the embellishments as otherwise, it will take too much time for one night. It was basically a book they could put all their memories from girls camp into. The clip art came from http://www.pccrafter.com/ and the “Day 1” were foam stamps with black craft paint onto Bazill cardstock. Although only 3 pages are shown, this little bag book had “5 Days”. This project didn’t cost that much, as the main part of it, were paper bags and the embellishments were basically printed off the computer.

This little thing is so cute. I found these girly type kits at the dollar store that had a mirror, brush & comb in them. However, the mirror had a handle on it, which I didn’t think would work for this project, so I simply trimmed them off on my scroll saw to match the curve of the mirror. And it worked. You would never know it. Then I created the sticker on my computer and added color also on the computer in a paint program. Then I glued it onto the back of the mirror and covered with another circle (cut using a 3 inch circle punch) of clear cold laminating plastic that is sticky on one side. And completely finished. Wrapped all up with a note, and given to the girls at girl’s camp this year. Super cute.

Nativity Block

We made this block to give to the girls in YW. It is a 4×4 square block, painted and then decoupodged with pictures of the nativity. We added various odds & ends. The top has the theme for the year on it.
