An Ode to My Bestie

I wouldn’t have survived school if it weren’t for my BFF, Lea. She was my rock, my cheer squad and my very best friend. From the moment met in junior kindergarten, we were inseparable. We were Lemon and Lime, Skittles and Chupa Chups, Josée Chouinard and Kristi Yamaguchi, and oh-so-much more, and we had a blast!

Back then, we’d find any excuse to trade tokens of our awesome friendship, from split-heart necklaces and friendship bracelets to our shoelaces! Once, we even broke a pink school eraser in half and swore our everlasting bond on the crumbling pieces. Five days later, mine was lost, but to this day I still think about it and smile.

So I’m celebrating my Best Friend Forever this February, the month of love, with a throwback to our younger days and a modern take on Friendship Bracelets from Klutz. I paired them with our favourite photos to make these super sweet and completely personalized valentines. There were so many fun bracelet designs to choose from, I had to make more than one. Now I can’t decide which one I like best, so I’m giving her all four. Anything for my best gal, because she’s totally worth it!

This Valentine’s Day, banish boxed cards and get creative! Show your loved ones just how much you care with handmade valentines that are sure to make them smile.


  1. This is excellent! If only we had these when we were younger, perhaps the tokens would have lasted a little longer ; )
