Summary

A package of love for the tween or teen (or older!) girl in your life. Teaching both real craft skills and delivering inspirational lessons of self-acceptance, this kit is full of opportunities to show them that they are stronger than they know. Learn cross-stitch, work with clay, create a pop-up card and participate in a community "We Can Do It!" coloring mural.  All projects come with easy to follow directions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This kit was inspired by the work of Eugene, Oregon non-profit Ophelia’s Place. Ophelia’s Place is a prevention-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls ages 10-18 make healthy life choices through empowerment, education and support. 15% of all kit sales will go back to Ophelia’s place in the form of a cash donation.  OR Use discount code "DONATION" to get 15% off and send a kit directly to Ophelia’s Place and they will distribute it to a girl involved in their program. 

What's Inside? 4 Main Projects and a few small gifts

Project #1: Embrace Imperfection//Wabi-Sabi Clay Bowl Project

Includes 6 oz of white air-dry clay, sandpaper, white & gold acrylic paint and paintbrush. This project introduces the Japanese aesthetic of “wabi-sabi”, which includes the view that beauty is imperfect, and the Japanese art technique of “kintsugi”, where broken objects are glued back together with golden adhesive. 

Project #2: Celebrate Your Strength & Persevere through Challenges//Strong Like a Girl Cross-Stitch Project

Includes pattern, one 6”x6” piece of white aida cloth, one 4” wooden hoop, an assortment of colored floss and one needle. With an assortment of colors provided, choose your own hair, shirt and skin tone colors. Cross-stitch is a simple technique, but sometimes the execution hits some snags. Finishing the project requires patience and perseverance. 

Project #3. Celebrate Diversity and Share Some Love//Rainbow Heart Card

Fill the insides of these lovely folded multi-colored hearts with words of affirmation or encouragement for yourself or a friend who needs some cheer. Invoking the colors of the rainbow flag, this project also honors our LGBTQIA+ community. Includes card pattern, multi-colored card-stock, tacky glue and envelope.  

Project #4. We Are All in This Together//We Can Do It! Community Mural Project

Playing one part in this community mural project will remind girls everywhere that we are stronger together. Each kit will come with one of twenty-five printed mural pages that will later be mailed to Ophelia’s Place and put together to create a 3x4 ft. piece of wall art for their community spaces. Participants are encouraged to color each page with their own artistic choices. Includes: one 8.5x11” printed piece of cardstock, one large pre-addressed envelope and sufficient return postage. 

Icing on the cake:  The kit will also include one 4x4 inch square “Stronger than you Know” vinyl sticker and special bookmark whose back lists 10 empowering books for young adults. (Thanks to Melissa Hart, Author of Better with Books: 500 Diverse Books to Ignite Empathy and Encourage Self-Acceptance in Tweens and Teens for the suggestions!)
