What can be a better gift for a friend other than something that you made yourself and not just purchased from a gift shop?

A friendship bracelet is a good answer. To make this kids lanyard crafts, prepare 2 colours of a three foot-long segments of lanyard lace.

Pick the farthest lace to the right and place it under the two middle laces and then over the first lace.

Pull tight to make it look more neat and crisp. Continue doing the steps until the bracelet looks twisted and braided.

Make another braid with 2 different colours and twist the 2 braids together and secure it on the wrist by tying.

2. Funky Bookmarks

The materials for making these bookmarks are so easy to find. You only need a few strips of lanyard lace, canvas, and colourful beads.

The canvas is used as a template so you will have to cut holes for each lanyard lace to go through.

The lanyard lace should go through the hole and into the colourful beads. It is up to you how much beads you want to put on.
