Craft Roundup: Fun DIY Badges
Kids can create a scouting classic with simple household items – whether you opt for some embroidery action or make your project with basic office nametags
Happy Back to School Day! Hopefully everyone had a great summer and is ready to hit the books. And I'm betting afterschool activities will be starting soon, like scouting. If your kids can't wait to see their fellow scouts, get them ready for it by making your own playful badges. Perhaps one can be awarded for Most Colorful Colorer?
Mollie, from Wild Olive, shows you how to make a simple embroidered badge that will look perfect on a backpack or a jean jacket.
These animal badges were part of an in-store project with Gap Kids, but luckily, Mer Mag has provided the template and how-to instructions for us to make at home.
For older crafters, find your old label maker and see what kind of creativity can arise. Cathe Holden of Just Something I Made encourages her readers to take common office supplies and give them a more artistic look on one of the most simple meeting staples out there – the name tag.
If you, or someone in your family, love paper crafting, then you need to make this badge this weekend. Poppytalk shows you how to create a beautiful badge with a charming collection of paper butterflies.
