Union Jack Badges

The end of the school year came barreling toward us like a speeding train.  My daughter wanted to make little gifts to give her classmates to say good-bye.  Because she goes to an international school, many children are "leavers" who will be moving on during the summer. 

So, we whipped up these little Union Jack badges.  They would look cute pinned on a backpack or jacket.  The perfect accessory for the Jubilee Weekend or the upcoming London Olympic Games. 

We attached the badges to these felt hearts and added stickers on the back with her contact information.  Hopefully it will remind her friends to keep in touch during the summer months.

You can download the detailed PDF instruction sheet to make these cute badges here.

Here's how we said good-bye to our friends in Australia last year.
Do your kids give gifts to their classmates at the end of the year?  


  1. Love this!!! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing,


  2. What a cool idea! We have never done goodbye gifts at the end of the year, but might have to give it a try next year.

  3. Thanks! These were a big hit with the kids. Even the boys thought they were very cool. Kids love to decorate their backpacks so I hope they will be put to good use.

  4. You are officially too much! I love them.

  5. Those are super cute! Are you guys on a different school schedule than the British?
