I love Girls Camp so much!  Even though I moved halfway across the country, I still ended up being in charge of our ward (church congregation) girls camp!  This is my 5th time being in charge (in 3 different wards) and I couldn't be happier, especially because it is my daughter's first year!  It will be so much fun to experience that with her.

So, every camp does things differently.  So I am sure that some of the things I'm used to doing will be different.  No matter what, I always like to give the girls something special while I'm there.  This year, I decided to use my minimal jewelry-making skills to make each girl a super-cute beaded zipper pull.



Our camp theme is "Courage to Serve" and it is all about being a missionary.  Many girls in our church serve as full-time missionaries when they turn 19, but even those who don't are encouraged to be missionaries of Christ to people around us.  We hope to help give them some encouragement and tools to make that responsibility a little easier!

Just like real missionaries, each ward is called to "serve" in a specific country.  We are representing New Zealand!  It has been fun to learn a little about our country, and we will even be making and sharing a dessert popular in New Zealand while we are up at camp.

To help the girls remember their experience, I made the beaded zipper pulls with a circle punch of the New Zealand flag (purchased here), and used beads in the country colors of red, white, and blue.

I'm not going to give you a tutorial because this one is amazing, and it's exactly what I followed.

My daughter helped me put together the bead charms, and we put together twelve of these in just a few hours.  That's with both of us being beginners!  This would make a wonderful gift for any occasion.  Just search for bottle cap images and you could find anything you are looking for!

PS- you get a sneak peek of the Girls Camp Tees I made :)
