WTFriday: Crafting. That's Hot.

[We're starting a new feature here on the Daily Fave called WTFriday, dedicated to all the stories that make you scratch your head and think, "What the…?" So without further ado…]

Paris Hilton has hatched a plan to get tween / teen girls scrapbooking.

Still waiting for the punch line? Sorry, there isn't one.

Look for the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection in the Spring of this year. According to this article in the L.A. Times, "The fabric embellishment kits include iron-ons with rhinestones, embroidery and appliques, and the scrapbook collection features albums, papers and blingy embellishments. Kits are geared to teens who want everything coordinated and ready to go because, evidently, they're as time-strapped as the rest of us."

Paris's panties-exposing past notwithstanding, I'd like to give her the benefit of the doubt on this one. After all, I loved making collages when I was a kid. But can't we keep this simple? When did glitter, glue, scissors, and old magazines become passé? I really don't want my little girl thinking that she needs more bling at every turn.

What do you think?
