The Girl Scouts have been selling their delicious cookies for almost 100 years–dating all the way back to 1917. In 1936, they hired a bakery to take over production due to overwhelming demand, and now they sell over 200 million boxes of cookies per year. Did you know that during World War 2, the Girls Scouts sold calendars in addition to the cookies because ingredients such as flour, sugar and butter were so scarce? Also did you know that in 1942 there were 48 cookies per box!! Oh how the times have changed.
Amy has just adapted one of her cards at the request of an enterprising young Daisy Girl Scout and her mother. They wanted to use Amy’s design for Thank You Notes to go with each of the orders, and as Gift Tags (Amy Adele Calling Cards) to attach to the Girl Scout cookie boxes. What a wonderful way for them to thank all of their customers!
