My Girl Scouts Project

Is there much better than FRIENDS?????? That is what I thought when I was asked by a friend to design a project for her Girl Scout (Brownies) troop. I kept thinking that I wanted to do a mini book. The subject FRIENDS just kept coming to mind - so I went with it.

This was a group of 6-9 year old girls. It had to be cute and cool, too! So I decided to start with patterned paper. The paper I ended up choosing is Stampin' Up!'s "Cutie Pie". So that dictated the colors. All supplies used are Stampin' Up! (punches, cardstock, patterned paper, ink, stamps, brads, ribbon).

We made the book with the Girl Scouts last night - and they had an ABSOLUTE BLAST!!! They managed to finish the whole book in 1.5 hours and even stamp in their book for fun! They did a fantastic job!!!!
