With cookie season just around the corner for many councils & cookie rallies growing in popularity, I thought it would be appropriate to find a cookie related SWAP. Today’s SWAP is a cookie box. The original printout can be found on Scouting Web – a great website for all things scout related (Girl & Boy Scouts!). (If the link, does not work, send me an e-mail – they are currently working on their website – updating pages, etc. I will update my link if they change theirs!) These cookie boxes are from Little Brownie Bakers. The names are a little different than the cookies from ABC Bakers. During this cookie season, I will attempt to recreate this page by scanning boxes of cookies (as we finish the boxes - what my family has to go through for Girl Scouts!). I will update when I have the boxes scanned!
Supplies: Print out of cookie boxes, scissors, pin backs, glue (can use glue sticks or white glue)
Step 2: Add glue to flaps/sides. Put box together - will need to hold into shape until glue “dries”. If using glue stick, this will be a short amount of time. However, I have found that glue sticks have a tendency to come apart after a while. On the other hand, white glue can be messy but it should hold it together!
I used white glue for this box. It took a little longer to “set up” but I believe it will stay together longer than the glue stick boxes may!
Step 3: Add a flat back pin (can use hot glue for this step) to back of box.
Step 4: Add troop tag & you cookie box swap is completed!
Next week – cookie SWAP’s!
Yours in Scouting!
