This party craft was inspired by a suggestion from Craft Bits.
I purchased a bag full o' buttons from Crafts Etc in the scrapbook aisle. The bag provided brighter colors than I had at home and the bag provided so many more buttons than I would have been willing to spend money on should I have purchased the sewing department's buttons.
I would suggest dividing the buttons before setting them in front of the girls, otherwise you are setting yourself up for the "It's not fair she has____" mantra.
Putting the buttons on was the easy party. Tyeing the knot, meh, not so much.
The finished result.
I received mixed reviews on making the bracelets. One of the girls said it was fun and she loved the bracelet. The other one indicated that it was "too hard". I am not particuarily taking stock in that review as she seemed to be enjoying the project while we were in the middle of it.
