Girl Scouts bridge to the next level, rainbows are often part of the celebration theme. These Girl Scout bridging rainbow SWAPs are fun for trading between troops or for leaders to give as little gifts. If you are unfamiliar with SWAPs, they are Special.Whatchamatcallits.Affectionately.Pinned.Somewhere. In everyday people terms, a SWAP is a small handmade crafty item (usually with a pin attached) that Girl Scouts exchange. Girls make them to take to camps and events as conversation openers and for sharing.
I love this one. To make it you use Sculpey Bake Shop clay. Mold and bake then glue a pin to the back.
To make this one, you simply use Shrinky Dinks and Sharpie markers. Color your rainbow, punch a hole then bake according to the instructions. Put a jewelry clip through it and attach it to a pin.
These darling felt rainbow pins are featured over on the blog at Kunin Group using felt. They are fun to make and darling too. The cloud was made using a die-cut with my Badges die that I designed for Ellison/Sizzix.
Our troop has tote bags for each girl. They have a lot of meaning. You can check them out and get the plans to make them for your girls too.
There are TONS of rainbow projects on my blog. Here are links to a few of my favorites.
