The Official BSA Whittling Chip
for Bear Cub Scouts and Webelos Scouts
is a Wallet Card (No. 34223A) and/or Patch (08598)

the Whittling Chip patch is considered a "Temporary Patch"
and, if worn, should be worn centered on the RIGHT Pocket of the Cub Scout or Webelos Scout Uniform Shirt (NOT on a pocket flap),
or on a patch vest, blanket or outer wear. Scouts who earned it while in Cub Scouts may also wear it on the BACK of a merit badge sash.
It should NOT be sewn on a pocket flap
