Fire Hose Girl Scout SWAP

Hello all!  This isn't a paper project....well kind of if you count the fire hydrant but, this is a SWAPS that I made for our Girl Scout troop's trip to the Fire Station. SWAP's are Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.   The Girl Scout troops make them when they go to special events/field trips and then they trade with other troops when they are at larger, regional events.  The idea is to make something to remember the event but, to make it as cheap as possible and recycle if you can.

For this one, this was a 'fire hose' that I made using a couple feet of white rope, some $.19 brass plumbing fittings and a blue grocery store back that I cut to look like water coming out of the hose.   I cut the Fire Hydrant's using the Create a Critter cartridge at 1" and I added the troop information on the back, used an eyelet on the top and hung them from the pin that is hot glued to the back of the rope.  We were really happy about how these turned out!
