My daughters love these!  They are going to be a hit with the tweens and teens so if you have someone in that age group and need a gift idea these will be perfect!  They are only $12.95 for the book and then you can add extras for $4.95 each so you’ve got a complete kit for around $20.

There are two styles, Bluebird and Modville, each with their own coordinating accessories!
