I’m a Daisy Scouts™ Leader!

I wanted to explain why I have been M.I.A. recently I have been working on Daisy Scouts™ Projects.  I will be showing Daisy Scouts™ Projects on the blog (I even created a Page for the projects) none of these projects are officially endorsed by the Girl Scouts™ Organization.  For that reason I will not be showing images 0f the badges we are working on (they are all copyrighted including the Girl Scouts™ Logo).   I am thinking about asking for permission from the Girl Scouts™ Organization to use the logos and badges but I need time to think of a well written letter to the Trademark Office of the Girl Scouts™.

I was asked to do a “display” to get girls excited for scouting.  I admit I sort of went CRAZY on this but I am so happy with how it turned out.

Materials:

  • Cardboard Display Board (I purchased mine at Wal-Mart)
  • Craft Paint in Assorted Colors – (I chose shades of blue and a green for the background)
  • Big Paint Brush
  • Letter Stencils (Mod Podge® Tracing Template 2″ Alphabet)
  • Letter Stamps (Making Memories Foam Stamps – Stencil)
  • Assorted Paper (My colors matched the Daisy Scout™ Petals)
  • Cricut™ with George and Basic Shapes™ Cartridge
  • Brownie Scout™ Paper from K & Company (this paper pack is retired – I recommend picking it up if you see it!)
  • Sparkle Mod Podge®
  • Daisy Petal Template (CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD)

Painting the background green.

I thought the board needed a little more interest – I started adding the lettering.

I used the Making Memory Stamps to stamp the Girl Scout Law on the background of the middle panel.

Arranging the petals. I cut all the lettering out with my Cricut™ George and Basic Shapes™ Font collection at a 1″ height.

Adding the Sparkle Mod Podge® to hold the petals in place. I also used it on the background to give everything a sparkle.

Title added along with the Journey Patches. I traced the images from the Daisy Scout Book – my printer is dead. I would recommend scanning the images from the Daisy Scout™ Handbook and printing them out.

Lettering completely finished and the Girl Scout Law and the Girl Scout Promise were added. I used the sheets from K & Company Paper Pack. I matted them with corresponding paper.

I wanted to show how much fun being a Girl Scout™ is and I wanted the ability to be changed every so often. The frames were created from recycled cardboard (cereal boxes). I used the scrap paper from the K & Company paper pieces from the Law and Promise. I glued Acetate to the inside of the frame and glued a pocket to the back, leaving one side opened so you can get the photos out. I glued the pouch to the board and added the photos.
