Kit Assembly

Here's what I have been up to these last few days. This fall (October 15th), I will be attending a Guiding retreat in North Bay. I volunteered to help out with the craft cupboard. The craft cupboard, from what I understand, is an informal store where Guiders can buy craft kits to make with their Girl Guide Units. So I had to put together about 5 different kits. I'm pretty proud of the last three because I pushed for them and they are a little different from the traditional GG kits.

The first one is a kit to make simple beaded flower bobby pins. There is an example below.

The second one which is really fun is a kit to make a top. You can see an assembled top in the middle. They spin really well. I saw a top like this in a Martha Stewart magazine and although I couldn't find the picture, I figured out how to make them (not like its hard or anything) and put these kits together last night. I think I will be selling these little kits at my next craft show, you know, for the kids.

The last kit is a kit to make metal bookmarks and I haven't assembled that kit yet.
