Default Scout leaders - giving out patches?

What do you usually do when giving out patches? I'm running out of ideas.

I have:
Tied them to a flower
Tied to a balloon - didn't work too well
Put in a little purse
Put in a little ceramic holder that looked like a bag
Stapled to a ribbon

I usually hold them until I have 2 or more & I don't like just handing them the patches.

wow - I don't do any of that -

I save them and hand them out 2-3 times a year.
We have a semi- ceremony and I have all the items in a sandwich bag with their name on it. As I call each girl, I take the patches out of the bag, run off all the things the girls have earned, then hand the baggie back to them so they can put it in their take-home file.


Howabout tying them up in a hankerchief?
putting them in a little plastic mug?
taping them to a colored popcycle stick?

I wanted to do awards like that but havent' had the time to do it.
The last time I left the try-its in the packaging and tied them together with curly ribbon.
What Try-It's do you have? Could you do something to reflect one of them?

I never thought of trying to do something that matches the try-its. I have Write Away, G/S around the world, and Cookies count. I could put the Write away on pencils but what would I do with the others? Maybe I'll just tie them all together with curly ribbon & to a pencil or pen.

Putting them in a plastic mug or a hankerchief is a good idea. I need to go to the dollar store & see what they have...

I would pick one theme like the Write Away and attach them to a pencil.
