It’s Cookie Time again! By popular demand the free printables for Girl Scout Cookie Lanyards have been updated for the 2024 season with a very exciting bonus – FREE CANVA TEMPLATES!!
Lanyards are a quick, easy and helpful sales tool for your troop.
Girl Scout Cookie Lanyards are great reference tools so girls don’t get overwhelmed trying to memorize all the details for cookie sales. I found lots of fun ideas on Pinterest, and this is what I came up with for the girls to wear when out selling door to door or at a cookie booth.
The front features nice photos of the cookies and shows which are considered traditional and which are specialty.
The back serves as a quick guide for when customers purchase multiple boxes of cookies, and it reminds them to add an extra $1 per box of specialty cookies. I have a note about how to write out checks, but I left this off the free printable version. You can write that info in for your troop if you like, or use the free Canva templates to enter your info.
Cookie lanyards are printed on cardstock, placed in a laminating pouch and laminated. Cardstock makes these a little thick so you want to be sure to seal the edges all around; be sure to leave about a 1/8″-1/4″ border when you trim. The corners were sharp so I ordered a new corner rounder. I debated between the 5mm and the 10mm, and I’m happy with the results of the 10mm.
Hole punch the top center, then slipped the key rings on. I was going to put these on lanyards, but thought ribbon would be less expensive. (I accidentally bought wired ribbon at first, then bought two rolls of the ribbon I actually used so really, I probably could’ve just bought 7 lanyards!)
Grosgrain ribbon is nice because it’s more durable than a satin ribbon. Cut roughly 30″ of the 5/8″ wide ribbon for each necklace, put it through the key ring and tie a knot at the end. My ribbon roll has 18 feet of ribbon, which is just enough to make 7 necklaces with a little bit leftover.
