Young Women's Personal Progress Neckalce

To help encourage our girls to do their personal progress we came up with an idea to hand stamp each of the values on washers for necklaces, and as the girls pass off each value they will get that value added to their necklace. Using sharpies we colored each value the color associated with it.

To learn how to hand stamp washers go to this tutorial here.
If you have problems getting the left over marker off your washer with just a baby wipe an alcohol pad works great!!

We made the washers look styling by weaving them through ribbon with this tutorial here

The girls love the necklaces, and hopefully this will get them excited and motivated to continue to work on their personal progress!
