Your primary relationship is with your Big. She would be the #1 person to craft for. It’s really thoughtful to think of your Twin as well and you are kind to not want to leave her out. But the twin relationship is not as “giftie” focused as big/little. It’s similar to giving your mom (or boyfriend) more gifts than a neighbor friend. You love them both, but you would favor your closer relationship a bit more. So the majority of your crafting should be for your big and some extra sugar for your twin is super nice too!
As for balancing your gift giving, it’s true that if you go way overboard and shower your big with an abundance of gifts ~ you will probably make your Twin feel uncomfortable. You don’t have to make “tons” of things for your Big. She should be spoiling you! If you dominate the family with an overabundant amount of crafting, it can cause strain and competition with your sisters. Think of it this way ~ you wouldn’t attend a party and bring 20 gifts for the hostess, when a simple bottle of wine or a bouquet of her favorite flowers would do. Excess extravagance makes other people feel awkward and makes you look like a show off. Bigs should give littles more gifts and you should be generous in return with an appropriate amount of sugar. Sometimes ‘less is more’ if your crafts are truly meaningful and sentimental.
When you have a little, then it’s your turn to ramp up the crafting and spoil her with extra goodies and treats. For now, keep things well balanced, fair and considerate with your Twin. Family peace means more than any crafting competition! xoxo ;)

Any “keepsake” type craft would be nice for graduating seniors. To cut costs, buy in bulk and use similar supplies. You can either make everyone the same type of gift, for example each sister gets a picture frame, or you can use the same paints, jewels and accents for different crafts with the same basic color scheme. By using your “bulk” materials you could make one girl a picture frame, one a plaque and one a set of wooden letters or a decorated wine glass! By theming your gifts and buying smart you can manage the cost.
When crafting for graduates think about commemorative type gifts. For example, decorate a picture frame and insert a beautiful printed copy of your sorority creed. A meaningful song or poem about the journey ahead is also a thoughtful insert. You want to emphasize the future, accomplishments, congratulations, and life passages. Use your sweetest sorority symbols, mottos, slogans and meaningful images for your grad crafts. These are the things your sisters will treasure in the years to come.
As to quantity, I think one expressive gift per sister, a thoughtful card and one sorority flower is plenty for each sister. Those things would make a special and appropriate gift set from a little sister to her older family members! xoxo ;)
