Let us make a beautiful card for the precious friend we have, who has held through thick and thin of our life. First of all take an A4 sized pink sheet and then fold it in half, cut off 2 inches from the top of the card. Now paste a white square sheet on the front of the card. Get some flower cut outs, the small ones. You can even cut small flowers using a flower cutter. Now paste them on the white sheet as a trail off of flowers. Now take a white sheet and cut it to measurement. We are making pop-up pillars from the white sheet, then paste it inside the pink sheet. Now take a colourful thread and paste on it ‘F’, ‘R’, ‘I’, ‘E’, ‘N’, ‘D’, ‘S’ on different square pieces of coloured paper. Now paste this thread on the pillars.

Now we are going to discuss some gift options for our best friend. You can surely give your best friend a bracelet. For boys choose neutral colours and for girls you can easily go with bright colours, or if you happen to know your best friend’s favourite colour then that is the best. Now take a chain and measure it to the half of your wrist. Now take the colourful thread and start knotting it. When you reach ¾ of the length turn the other side and start looping on the double thread. This is ready. Now you can make a two piece heart necklace one part for you and the other for your BFF. Take a sheet and make a heart on it. Now roll some clay. Then cut the shape out of the rolled clay. Cut the heart in a zig-zag manner from the middle. Now make proper holes to pull through the chain. Paint the heart pieces and let it dry. Pull the chain through and your necklaces are ready to rock your necklines. You can even gift your best friend a mason jar full of his/her favourite candy and finish it off with a ribbon and a cute message. You can enjoy the candies together.

Now we are going to make a beautiful bracelet for our dear friends. Take a coloured ribbon and some white pearls. To help you with the DIY you need a needle and thread matching to the ribbon. Now thread the needle and then knot it at the end. Pull the thread through the ribbon at some distance from the end. Now pull through the pearl and then pull the thread through some more ribbon, place some more pearls. Do not gather the ribbon at first. When you are satisfied with the number of pearls, gather the ribbon around the pearls and knot the ribbon at both ends. This knotting will secure the pearls in their place. Your bracelet is ready.
