Our troop have used many of badges in a bag throughout the years. One badge that stands out from the rest is the Jewelry badge for Juniors. The girls enjoyed the opportunity to make 5 different kinds of Jewelry and we also added a additional safety pin bracelet that I want to share with you today.

Watch my girls working with the Badge in a bag kit in this short video. The kit is available online at:

To make this you will need:

  • Large safety pins – approx 70
  • Lots of small beads
  • 2 Elastic cords

111. Firstly open up a safety pin and just thread lots of beads onto it, almost to the tip, then close it. Repeat with all of your safety pins.

2. Once you have all your safety pins with beads put together, thread the safety pins onto the elastic cords.

3. Wrap the bracelet around the person wrist that you want bracelet to fit and pull two ends of cord to put them under a bit of tension, and then tie them together with a simple overhand knot.
