Chances are pretty good that if you have a pre-teen, you're familiar with Rainbow Loom.
However, if you are among the uninitiated (as I was earlier this summer), take a moment to check it out HERE. It's kind of a fun new twist (pun intended) on the friendship bracelet. Except instead of tying knots in string, you use this loom:
|Apparently someone is making a necklace.|
And these colorful rubber bands:
To create fun jewelry:
|My daughter would like you to know that this is merely a fraction of what she's made. |
She tends to give her bracelets away as fast as she makes them.
The problem is that all of those rubber bands don't come in neat, plastic jars. Oh no. They come in plastic bags. And I would show you a picture of the plastic bags except that enthusiastic loomers tend to rip them open in excitement, scattering their contents everywhere.
(Can you tell that happened here in this very house? And can you also tell that it made me a wee bit grumpy? Bonus points for you, my astute friend.)
The good news is that all of that is behind us now that I've organized the bands into these neat, labeled containers.
I used some clean plastic jars left over from another project and labeled the tops with my Silhouette. Any jar will do, though, as will any type of label. My daughter loves her new, more organized crafting supplies (just like mom's!) and I am thrilled to have tamed the Rainbow Band beast!
