Phew…I’ve been busy super this week. I was away for the last 10 days and as soon as I got back into town I needed to start working on 10 centerpieces for my son’s Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet.Here’s what I came up with.
Cub Scout Blue and Gold Centerpieces
I’m a craft hoarder and I’ve been hoarding coffee cans for the last year. I finally found a use for them and decided to recycle the cans into centerpieces by covering them with paper.
The Cub Scout emblem is a Fleur-di-lis and I actually didn’t think I had a Fleur-di-lis cut but I did a search on my Gypsy and it turned out I had 6 to choose from! I just love all those Cricut cartridge hidden secrets! I chose to use the Fleur-di-lis from Sweethearts cut at 3.75 inches along with the shadow base. If you don’t have a die cutting machine, a metal Fleur-di-Lis die would work great too. (see link below)
For the rosette middles, I embossed some circles with the Fleur-di-lis emblem and printed off some Cub Scout clip art. The boys loved the Rosettes and like boys do, they began to pretend the dowels were swords. I wish I had made enough so everyone boy could of took one home, maybe I’ll do that for next year.
Here’s how the centerpieces looked on the table at the banquet, tied together with balloons in the inside.
And here’s my little Wolf proud of his awards!
