scouts-l Mail Archive for March of 2000: Mom's pins
Fri Mar 10 2000 - 19:29:39 CST
what to do for Mom & the pins she earns along with her Scout(s). I am
thinking about some sort of a ribbon that mom can wear around her
neck--easy to take on and off, safe for the Scout to pin things on. anyone
done something like this?
I have all mine, Scout to Eagle, on a red ribbon stuck on the fancy hat
(covered with Scouting hatpins) I wear to events. Some moms around here wear
a ribbon on a pin, sort of like the AIDS or breast-cancer awareness ribbons,
and line up their mom's pins on those. Makes it easier for the boys to pin on
the next one. Some moms wear two or three ribbons (nobody I know here has
more than 3 Scouts).
I should think it would be easy to make some-- you can get the locking or
clutch-back pins or other findings (little hardware for jewelry) in a crafts
store, and attach some 1/2, 3/4, or 1-inch grosgrain ribbons available at the
local notions shop or department. Cut the bottom edge with pinking shears or
hem neatly. Makes a nice ornament.
