It’s Monday and I am headed off to our church’s girls camp this week. I won’t have access to a computer or internet so if you leave a comment or a question I will get back to you as soon as I am home again. Thanks for your patience. Please pray for me. With only one day home to recover from my trip to Europe I am praying the jet lag isn’t bad and I can function! I am excited to be at camp this year as it is my daughter’s last year to attend and I am looking forward to spending the week with her. I am also excited to be one of the “craft ladies.” I have been working with my friend Nanette and we have some fun camp crafts planned for the girls this week during their craft time. So while I am away at camp I thought I’d share with you what we will be doing with the girls. The first thing they will be making is their camp journal. They can use this during their week at camp and once they get home to record their thoughts and ideas. The girls attend a class each day called Destiny which is the “spiritual” part of camp and hopefully they can use the journal to record what they learn and feel there as well. Nanette did a great job decorating those boring composition notebooks and made them look super cute!
The girls will be using scrapbook paper, ribbon, buttons and duct tape to decorate them with.
We found lots of fun different colored duct tape at the craft store that they can use to cover the spine of their notebook.
We picked up lots of fun embellishments like these flowers for them to use too.
And we are also going to show them how to make these fun paper flowers that they can add to their books. We will use spray adhesive to glue the paper onto the notebook and then glue for the rest. The next craft is the Washer Necklace.
We picked out two different size washers at Home Depot and the girls will mod podge on some scrapbook paper. We are using some shape makers to cut out the round circles of paper and then they will mod podge the paper onto the washer. Then they will cover it with Diamond Glaze to give it a great shiny, resin look. Here’s a great tutorial for washer necklaces. She uses a different type of glue in the tutorial but we had lots of mod podge so wanted to use that up. I also found these great different colored leather necklaces on ebay for a great price.
