Friendship Bracelet Craft Kit
Loved this kit! It's got 12 templates and enough string for each one to make 3 bracelets--36 total. I use it for girl scouts 8-12 year olds. Very quick. Easy to do. Measure string, cut, tie a knot. thread it into template, pull down a string, pull up a string and rotate. You can make a bracelet in 1 hour. Love it and am ordering another. Thanks very much!

Perhaps a better name for this kit is 'Kumihimo Craft Kit.' If you do an internet search on 'Kumihimo', you will find a lot of information, instructions, and patterns. The disks are used to make a wide variety of ropes, bracelets, and necklaces. There are patterns to make a huge variety weaves. Beads and embellishments can be incorporated into the weave. Before I found these disks in this catalog, I purchased a single Kumihimo disk for $8.00.

I ordered these to keep the older kids busy (and quiet) during nap time. The directions are unclear. The kids can't figure it out, I can't figure it out and the parents can't figure it out.
I will most likely try to teach teh kids the "old-fashioned" way to make friendship bracelets.
If it didn't come with thread, this kit would be absolute junk.

I don't get it
the directions might as well be in a different language. I had 3 other people look at it as well and I have yet to find someone that can figure it out. The forms are nice though and everything came as it said it would. I will keep trying to figure out how to make it work.

Granddaughter and I tried these out right away. The directions were a bit confusing but a quick trip to the Internet helped solve this problem. There I even found more pattern to use with the looms. We have been having a blast making bracelets and anklets.
