Trending: Stack Bracelets {like Emily Maynard's}

 Okay, okay, okay.  I have a confession:  I wanna be Emily Maynard {from the recent season of the Bachelorette}.
She is such a sweetheart, very mature, and without mentioning, beautiful.
Many of my friends and I were very much into this season and watched faithfully every week until she finally chose Utahn Jef Holm!  Yay!

Since I cannot be Emily for reals, can't dye my hair that blonde, a few of my friends and I thought we'd have a girl's night and make some "Emily Bracelets", as we like to call them!
 If you see Emily on TV or in pictures, she is always wearing a wrist full  arm full of bracelets, which she pulls off so well! 

So here are a few things you will need:
Waxed linen cord (or waxed cotton)
Button
Beads
Charms

Here is a good tutorial we used to get a general idea of how to make them.  After making one or two like that, we kind of just started making up our own!!
And, because we don't get together as much as we should, and we were up later than our usual bedtimes, we were being a little goofy!
 We forgot to take pictures when we were all there so here is just one friend and me.
 Her's turned out way cute (the beautiful had on the left with pretty nails and rings!)
 And...we thought we'd go back to our elementary days and have a thumb war since we don't know what to do with our hands when we are being hand models! LOL!

You can bet I will be making more of these in every color!

If you haven't had a night out with your girlfriends in a while then plan one.  It's so much fun to have a night out to yourself without worrying about husbands, kids, and bedtime!  Oh yeah, and calories!
