Make It: Color-Wrapped Mystery Braid Bracelet

Hello! Do any of you like to pack up a project or two when you travel? Or maybe you're looking for a few new projects to do at home while the kids are off school? With it being spring break season, I thought I'd pull out this fun bracelet idea that I first shared last summer on i heart naptime.

Many of you have probably made or received woven friendship bracelets. And, some of you have probably seen the mystery braid bracelets too! When I had my supplies pulled out one day last summer, I started wondering about making the Mystery Braid bracelet more colorful in some way. After a couple of false starts and a knotting lesson from my sister, I came up with this fun version.

What You Need:
Mystery Braid Bracelet kit (I found mine at Michael's)
Cotton Embroidery Floss (3 skeins in colors of your choice)

You'll also want a scissors and tapestry needle on hand for ending off each thread color.

Print It: You're the Bomb! Lip Balm Valentine

Since it's been a busy month around here, I haven't posted as many Valentine's ideas as I had hoped to. So, I thought I'd at least post this one that I shared last month on Landeelu. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Here's a fun printable Valentine that would make a fun non-candy option for your daughter or granddaughter. Or maybe for a teacher? It might even make a fun gift for the favorite babysitter who's watching the kids for you on Valentine's Day!

What You Need:
EOS lip balm for each Valentine (I chose strawberry-kiwi.)
You're the Bomb! Valentine's printed on white card stock
Scissors (or craft knife)


Print It: You Are My Sunshine Valentine Printable

Last year I shared a "Kool" Valentine printable for Kool-aid drink pouches. This year I put together a new version to use with my daughter's favorite CapriSun drink pouches. It goes together quickly with only a few supplies, and BONUS, you can avoid being tempted by all the goodies in the Valentine aisle!

So grab some drink pouches from the pantry or put them on your shopping list, print and cut the You are My Sunshine cards, and gather some little helpers. You'll have Valentines ready to go in no time!
