Inspired by a lovely gift from my sister, this week I have been having a blast from the past and mucking about trying to make merit badges.
Want to start at the beginning? If you have landed here from somewhere around the internet and have missed any of the previous posts in this series, you can find them all snuggled in this archive.
Look At What I Made!
Here is what I created using this technique.
Getting To The Point
The Hatch blog has a great tutorial for creating the actual merit badge base so, rather than me show you this too, I thought that this week I would do a little digitizing and then show you how easy it is to combine that design with the merit badge blank.
