This year is the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, and there's some special patches that can be earned just this year. I put together a mini book for my daughter with activities from working on these patches. The Best Glue Ever was invaluable - it's strong enough to hold heavy embroidered patches with little effort!
I took each patch and placed a line of glue around the inside edge and added a few squiggles in the center. Then I set it aside for the glue to dry and get tacky.
Once the glue dried, I simply placed the patches on the page - and it worked beautifully! A minibook is great place for those extra patches. I added photos taken from troop activities this year, such as cookie sales and our spring encampment.
I even used the Best Glue Ever to make a pocket. I cut up a photo protector from American Crafts. I bought a package that holds multiple 4x6 photos. I made a very thin line around the edge of the protector and used my finger to lightly spread the glue. It dries almost instantly, but better yet dries perfectly clear.
And I now have clear pockets to add more memorabilia, such as tags and crafts from meetings. The bottom one is a "cootie catcher" that we made. Pockets are great because they don't permanently adhere your memorabilia in your book - so it can be taken out and enjoyed again & again.
