Handmade Centerpieces for Cub Scouts

Hello!  :)

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!
