Girlguiding UK new Promise - Mini books

A new Promise for Girlguiding UK will take effect as of September 1, 2013.

The new Promise reads:

I promise that I will do my best:
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs,
To serve the Queen and my community,
To help other people
To keep the (Brownie) Guide Law.

"the words ‘to be true to myself and develop my beliefs’ will replace ‘to love my God’, and the words ‘to serve the Queen and my community’ will replace ‘to serve the Queen and my country’." Source

"Over the past 100 years the Promise has changed a total of 11 times before this consultation. These changes have occurred to reflect the views of our members and the changing attitudes within our society". Source

I created a few mini books for the new UK promise... very similar to the mini books that I had made for Canada and Australia. These Promise books are handy for teaching our Girl Guides about Guiding around the world.

Update: 12 Sept. 2013:  It has been brought to my attention that the new UK Brownie Promise should read "and to keep the Brownie Guide Law".  My original minibook has "and to keep the Brownie Law" so I made the changes to include Guide.  I have the updated file if you would like to request that version. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Updated version with the correction "and to keep the Brownie Guide Law"

Wondering how to fold these mini books? 
I found this on pinterest...original source unknown..sorry!

The new UK Rainbow Promise

I promise that 
I will do my best to 
think about my beliefs 
and to be kind and helpful.
