1. Friendship Bracelet Valentines. Originally by Dandee Designs, link here. For quick friendship bracelets, simply braid three strands of embroidery floss; collage carries a great assortment of colors to choose from! Did you catch collage's free Atlas Pizza craft night last month, where we made friendship bracelets? (This month we are decorating mugs! Check our "upcoming events" tab HERE for more info.) If not, you can find instructions for the more complicated patterns for friendship bracelets by following the link above.

You could also draw on the bags using fabric markers! collage carries a huge variety of miniatures that you could fill these bags with, including things like temporary tattoos, mini figurines, Japanese erasers, and more!
