First off, before I share today's post.....
don't forget about my GIVEAWAY that I am having, you can see that post
I am trying to get to 100 followers, so please spread the word and tell your crafty friends about my blog! :)
Ok, now on to today's project. :)
If you are familiar with the Cub Scouts, you know that once a year is the Blue and Gold banquet, where awards are given that the boys have earned. I am on the planning committee for the scouts, and I volunteered to make centerpieces for the banquet. After looking on Pinterest for inspiration, I came up with this mason jar idea. Luckily, Michael's had mason jars on sale for .99! I made 8 centerpieces and I love how they turned out. :)
They were pretty easy to complete, the most time consuming part was doing the rosettes. I have the Tim Holtz rosette die and they really didn't take that long. Maybe an hour to make 24? I watched TV while I did it. :)
The large fleur de lis on the jar was from another Tim Holtz die. I shredded kraft cardstock for the inside of the jar and bought some cheap silk flowers to put inside the jar.
Here's a close up of one of the rosettes:
I think they will look great on our tables for the banquet! :)
Thanks for visiting!
