How to make Achievement Badges

Try adding some strips of ribbon and sparkly things to these stylish badges. Or go for a classic scouting style by mounting the artwork on wood veneer and pair it with woodsy colored canvas.  Pin your badges to a shirt, backpack, or even frame a display of them and you’re sure to be proud of your achievement.
