Update Re-Blog of the Girl Scout Cookie Lanyards with 2015 Varieties

It’s cookie season as you know, and we are getting ready for a lot of cookie sale opportunities!   With all of our booth ideas running through our heads we are also getting ready for Walk About Week.  For those that don’t know that is when we go door to door as a troop.  First thing I made for the girls is a lanyard to make it easier and faster when some one asks what kind and how much.

Here is a short tutorial on how I made ours….

5 yards of thick cos grain ribbon made 18 lanyards, it could make more or less depending on how long you make yours.

I had gotten a bag of these at a yard sale for a dollar I like using these for the lanyard clip than the two-part way you see a lot online.  Lace this through the ribbon first.

Then sew the ribbon together.  I sewed it three times across because the girls will pull on them I am sure.

I printed out the cookie variety and the price cheat sheet and stuck them to a green paper to match the ribbon.

Once I cut them out I laminated them and cut the out again with my helper…

Our First Cookie Booth of the Year 2013 “Snuggie Up!”

It was FREEZING!~ and windy and snowy but five of my scouts signed up for the day and all five were determined to have fun.  So what did we do to keep warm and have a fun booth?? We Snuggied Up!

We kept the cookies in boxes because what you can’t see in the pictures is the snow that would have gotten the boxes wet.  It was 31 degrees out that first booth day and we had a different theme in mind for out full out bling but on this day my Scouts just needed to stay toasty (-:

snuggies made it easy to keeping track of the cookies we sold

They did so well sold 68 boxes of cookies took turns eating lunch in Ms Erin’s warm car and started back to selling.

At times the snuggies came off because they were just a little awkward, but it was a fun day! and we only had 7 booths  more to go!~
