This book has many different, creative styles of friendship bracelets, all of them I found to be gorgeous. The book not only has photos of the steps, but also illustrations to make the creative process easy for anyone. My favorite is the “super simple” Candy Stripe bracelet, cute and easy! The book even has a section for common mistakes and how to avoid making them. There’s also lots of tips, tricks and suggestions for learning and changing things up, too. I think these would be really fun to make with a girl’s group or even at a sleepover.
