Friendship bracelets as gifts

Why can they make such nice gifts?  I ran a base teaching how to make them at a Jamboree last year.  They can be made from just a few different knots, in a wide range of colours in a range of designs, quite quickly.  Beads can be used too.

I like making them, from embroidery floss, mixing all kinds of colours, including variegated threads.  I make and sell them for my scout group.  I also make friendship pins, with the same knots.  It is wonderful to see when people like them, for themselves, or for friends.  Mind you, very few youngsters seemed to have friends last year judging by how many kept them!!!  Well they enjoyed making them, that was important.
