one for me. one for you


Here is another cute idea for a friendship bracelet from April of Second Sister using photobooth photos of her and Miss Margie... & using junk jewelry. I met April through Spark no 1 and she is helping Margie with all the planning for Spark no 3!
This year, with the arrival of my little Lola, I had to make some changes in my work load and this included the difficult decision of not planning Spark anymore... I loved every part about Spark and I miss all the fun planning but I am happy because it's definitely in inspiring hands and is sure to be a magical event! You should go!! :)

To make the bracelet: Start by scanning in your photo booth pictures and resizing them to about 50% to fit inside a charm frame. She soldered the metal for her frames using a solder iron. Or you can find similar frame charms here and here.
Then, use wire and pliers to attach charms and beads for each bracelet.
Everyone has photobooth pics with their bestie... what a fun keepsake!
April has other beautiful pieces at her Secondsister shop and her gorgeous Jackaroo line will be released this month.

Thank you! This is serendipidous(spelling?) I was just rummaging through a box of old photos, and ran across some very old sentimental photo booth photos. I was trying to think of how I could use these as gifts for someone. Now I know! I can't wait to get started :)
