Julie Schneider shared a great tutorial on how to make your own merit badge. These make great gifts to show someone you appreciate them; if you've never been a scout of any kind, this is an especially exciting way to show off your own talents.
Even if you don't think you have the skills to merit a badge in sewing, this DIY is simple enough to follow along with. It only requires a few materials and basic stitching techniques that are easy to learn. For this tutorial, Julie includes a template for her diamond badge, but it would be just as easy to create your own. Other Etsy crafters have made badges with pickles in jars and envelopes on them -- the possibilities are endless.
