DIY December Craft by @Scubagirl
Cool tweens by apparena

Here’s what you will need:

  • An old pair of jeans — find some with large back pocket that button or that fasten with velcro
  • A cute, long ribbon
  • Needle and thread (or a sewing machine that will handle denim)
  • Scissors
  • Embellishments, like sequins, buttons and beads

Here’s what you will do:

Step 1: Cut out the back pockets of the jeans.

Step 2: Measure the ribbon so that it’s long enough to go over your
shoulder so that the bag hangs at your waist, like in the picture, and
cut it.

Step 3: Sew the ribbon onto the pocket. If there is a flap like the
one in the picture, sew it under the flap. If not, sew it onto the
back. I think you might be able to hot glue gun it, but I haven’t
tried that, so you might want to stick with sewing it.

Step 4: Embellish it! If you don’t want to, you don’t have to.

Step 5: Load it up and wear it! These work as great phone holders, but
they also work for small things like change.

Green Tween Vote
by calypso Dragon 13

Here’s how iTwixie’s Green Tween of the Month works:

  • Each first Tuesday of the month, iTwixie takes nominations for iTwixie’s Green Tween of the Month.  Girls nominate BFFs from iTwixie or themselves, including why this person is GREEN! Nominations go in the comments section (below) of this article.
  • Girls nominated are included in a vote that lasts for one whole week.
  • The winner is announced at the end of the full week and gets a cool, GREEN, Hard Rock Cafe tote bag.

Today the voting for April Green Tween will begin.  Here are the reasons girls were nominated:

shimmer923 - made a coat rack out of recycled materials and a windmill too. She knows how to recycle!

nerw - has waited long enough to be elected again!

glittercookie - recently made recyclable jewlery and plans to redo an old building in her town for a silver award. She recycles and tries to reuse as many things as possible.

lifeliver166 - makes things out of old shoe-boxes, put up posters around the house about how to be greener, and for her Girl Scout Gold award (that she’ll be doing in a year or two) wants to pick up garbage around the roads and put in trash cans near the side or re-populate her area with bob-white quail, which are extinct in her area.
