Shimmer n Sparkle 5 in 1 Friendship Bracelet Studio Review (Cra-Z-Art)

Shimmer n Sparkle 5 in 1 Friendship Bracelet Studio
What It Is

You and your friends can show off your style when you make your own friendship bracelets with the Shimmer n Sparkle 5 in 1 Friendship Bracelet Studio. It includes instructions for making five different styles of friendship bracelets using the multi-loom studio tool. 

There are specific instructions for how to set up the loom, depending on which friendship bracelet you're making: classic, macrame, braid, and wave style all use the same set-up, while the spiral weave style will need a different configuration. But no matter which set-up you're doing, the bottom of the loom has a suction cup so that it sticks to your table and stays put while you're working.

The basics of getting started are also kind of the same. There are foam notches around the petals of the loom that hold the bracelets and strings in place. You'll have a knot at the top and each of your strings separated and slotted into their own notches. The instruction guide shows you how to tie different knots that will be helpful in starting and ending your bracelets. 

If you're a beginner, you might want to start with one of the two classic bracelets or any of the bracelet designs marked "easy". Just follow the instructions to weave the strings around each other from top to bottom. From there, you can move on to some of the more advanced friendship bracelet designs, including some that involve adding beads for decoration or to spell out words.
