I work at a Day

Postby yackie4camp » Mon Feb 11, 2013 1:44 am

I work at a Day camp and we helped the girls make simple swap banners. We picked up sticks and took a 9"x 14" piece of felt and glued it over the stick. The girls then attached yarn to hang their swap banners. We also added tassels to the sides to decorate them a bit. This way they can add their swaps they get each year. I also have mine on hats that I've decorated.

I have made a large

I have made a large tab, just like the ones we wear our pins on. I used yellow just like the Daisy tabs. I also used a dowel to hang the tab on and then I braided some yarn and this is what I used to hang my tab up with. I have my swaps on the tab, its really cute. The one I made is a little big so I am wanting to down size it, but will post a pic of it once it is completed..

One of my Brownie moms actually purchased an extra sash and is putting the swaps on that.

SWAPS display

Postby Mirth76 » Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:26 pm

I took a one yard piece of black fabric - mostly because it was what I had on hand- added lace to the bottom, and binding to the top. added loops to the top for a rod and an Iron on transfer in the middle. This was for the SWAPS the daughter and I got through Rock the Mall.

Lanyard Necklace or Tote Bag

Postby AstralV » Tue Apr 09, 2013 1:52 pm

My daughter wears a braided lanyard for swaps to display and carries a tote bag covered in Swaps to trade.

And if the tote gets too covered, we pin a lanyard to the bag and pin more swaps to the lanyard.

Tab banner!

Postby laura » Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:24 am

I did the same - a yard of green cotton made two large banners - which are now 75% full! I used a branch for a campy feel and drilled two holes through it, adding some leftover ribbon to hang them. They were a hit and my Cadette sewed three for a Take Action Project - Council loved them!

Other girls have hats that weigh too much to be worn! There are a bunch of great ideas on here!

One woman (whose class I had attended) had her husband make two identical trays from two pieces of pegboard and 1x2s. These were hinged together and a latch attached. She threaded fishing line through the holes, and pinned swaps to the fishing line. Protects the swaps better. Good luck!

We bought bucket hats for all the girls (oriental trading or making friends are great places to get a bunch of them cheap). We used fabirc paint and put their names on the hats. My girls get a kick out of having the swaps on their heads.
