Girls Camp Service Project

We made homemade boxes out of scrapbook paper. They are very easy and super cute.

Here is step by step directions.

Each box was tied with a bow and a homemade tag that said things like, May Your Dreams Come True, Dream Big, You Can Do Amazing Things, Live Your Dreams, and Dare to Dream.

Inside the box we made fresh water pearl stretchy bracelets. Each one had a charm hanging from it that said Hope, Love, Faith, Courage,etc.

We had 220 girls each making one. They were so cute all together. We had bags and bags of them.

Debbie Forrest and I were in charge of this activity. She decorated the room all princessy.

We are donating these to Fresh Start Women's Center in Phoenix.
We went and toured the facility and were really impressed with everything they have to offer. They have a Doctor, Lawyer, Career Counselor, Library, Computers with Internet, Classes, an Image room where they give haircuts and clothes. It is a one stop shop for any women who needs help getting a job or starting a new life. Check out their website they are doing an important work.
