A little bit of Wood Badge bling
I have been busy getting ready for course. I made some bling for the patrol flags, staff, my patrol, and other Bears (I am part of the Bear Patrol). I could not find a stamp, so I made one. Fortunately there were materials in my art supplies! I bought some wooden discs, lanyard clips, and leather cording. I had plenty of beads and leather scraps left over from our days in Cub Scouting. Copper and gold paint were in the paint bin, and showed up nicely on the wood and leather. I could not find Jim's drill, so I used my hand drill to put holes in the pieces. Stamping went much quicker! A few beads added before tying on the lanyard clips and they were finished. Now to add the course number and my initials to the ones for my patrol and the patrol flags. I might have to make more for Philmont.
