Do you love Girl Scouts?

"I Love Girl Scouts" swaps are the perfect way to spread GS happiness!

Using coilless safety pins and beads, these are a fun Girl Scout craft for any age to enjoy making and sharing. With our alphabet beads and colored beads, you can create swaps with special sayings for all your friends.

Coilless safety pins are important because you can open them up and thread the beads close to the head. This leaves the end of the pin free of obstruction when you pin it on. Normal safety pins have coils that do no allow you to do this when stringing beads onto them.
