Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge. DT members provide written or video instructions for their projects each challenge! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Welcome back for another Festive Friday!

We found a great festivity for the latest Festive Friday challenge! I hope you have your Girl Scout Cookie order done – it helps support such a worthwhile organization! Did you know that the cookie sale coincides with the birthday of the organization? The Girl Scouts organization will turn 108 this year. March 12, 1912 is the day when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the first Girl Scouts organization.

Using the Inspo List, grab at least three items and create a project to link to the challenge. There’s a wide range of ideas to choose from, and your project doesn’t have to reflect the “Girl Scout” part of the challenge – that’s just how we come up with a fun and interesting list!
