    I just joined this group. We have VBS next week. I am going to try this with the older kids, girls anyway. I’m betting it’s a hit. one question though. with the wire end damaging the page? Do you do anything like attaching another bead at the end or is that too chunky? Thanks.

  4. I loved this project because it was fun, turned out beautifull and my friend always looses her bookmarks. I also think that everybody who likes wire crafts should try it.

  5. I needed a quick but cute gift for my mom for mothers day and this was amazing
