Confession: I’m a sucker for personalization. I love the idea of being able to customize things to reflect your own story and so things like Pandora really appeal to me. However, sometimes I find the standard Pandora bracelet a bit much to wear with a casual outfit, especially if I’m already wearing a watch and the charms keep clinking against the watch face. Therefore, I like to get creative with the charms so that I can add my own twist!
When Chapters offered me $30 of free store-credit through their Plum Rewards program, I jumped at the chance to pick up some new books for crafting!
I don’t know about you, but I definitely had an origami phase when I was younger. In elementary school, our teacher showed us a new book about 3-D origami, and I thought it was so neat how these little pieces could come together to make something so intricate!
I learned how to make my first friendship bracelet when I was 12 or so. Of course, it wasn’t half as fancy as this one – just a simple diagonal pattern was about all I could handle. Still, the nice thing about friendship bracelets is that once you learn the two knots, you can make anything!
The first thing I propose isn’t exactly a craft, but it is definitely something that counts as a “do it yourself”!
