Friendship Tokens

Jun 15, 2011

Dur­ing the meet and greet at Paper Cow­girl we had a super fun friend­ship token exchange. The tokens can be any­thing you wish to cre­ate and give away. This exchange would be some­thing fun to do at crops or any scrap­ping event. I just have to show you how cre­ative every­one was at Paper Cow­girl. I did my best to get a good close up of each one I received. My name badge was full.

One of the par­tic­i­pants cro­cheted all her flower tokens.

Some altered game pieces.

As you can see my name tag was full… col­ored keys tied on with yarn, stick­ers, millinery flow­ers a met­al dress form was cre­at­ed and watch faces were used. I’m not kid­ding when I said peo­ple made them from all sorts of items.

Kraft tags were altered and yes that is a blank from a rifle you see that was turned into a pin…

There were altered milk bot­tle caps and print­ed muslin. I passed out the heart stick pin.

Here is a pho­to of the blank from the rifle, love it next to the lace token… (only in Texas)

There was a boot charm and crown token.

There is a horse­shoe on the red token and two cute altered tags. Love the mes­sage of “Feel like a mil­lion” we all cer­tain­ly did dur­ing this event.

An altered a bin­go card.

And one of my stu­dents gave me this sweet token. It’s a com­pass altered with lace, beads and my favorite seam bind­ing.

I think this idea would be such a fun thing to do at any event, even fam­i­ly events. Just lit­tle some­things to remem­ber the day. There is no telling what would be cre­at­ed for fam­i­ly reunions… can you imag­ine what the men would come up with? This idea would also be super fun to do with a Girl Scout troop or sum­mer art pro­gram. I want to fig­ure out how to start doing this in the class­es I teach. I think it would be fun.

Wish­ing you all a hap­py Wednes­day. I’ll be sit­ting inside all day. The Texas sum­mer has arrived.
