Diamond Pickaxe Hard Enamel Pin-Badge

 

Following the success of my previous minecrafter badges, I have made some hard enamel versions of a diamond pickaxe. It is of amazingly high quality.

Minecrafter Badge

I have commissioned a special badge with a goal of showing that the wearer is an avid Minecraft player.

If used in Scouting, at present it can only be worn on uniform for 1 year from the date of issue as a custom badge with approval from your county commissioner, however I am working to get it internationally recognised as an activity badge.

I have requested approval from the Scout Association to call this an official activity badge, however this has not been granted, and has to wait until their next review, so they are not official activity badges, and does not have the scouting logo on the badge. I am obviously hoping the the Scout Association approves the badge and allows me to make it an official badge with the logo on it!

Its called the Minecrafter Badge. Its available in four different styles.

Explorer Minecrafter Badge - Pack of 5 Scouts Minecrafter Badge - Pack of 5 Cubs Minecrafter Badge - Pack of 5

Its primarily designed to encourage those who are not perhaps the most athletic and sporty to feel that they too can achieve something, and a wonderful way to get potential new members interested.

 

Getting the badge

For Scout leaders wishing to purchase this badge, it is available for £1 each from below. This covers the cost of making the badge, the postage and a very small amount of profit that is used to support a local scout troop. NB. For all orders  of £15 or over there is free shipping.
