Hi crafty friends! It's Jenny here today sharing a centerpiece project I made using Cheery Lynn dies. All of my school-aged children are in scouting and the big cub scout anniversary dinner blue & gold is typically held around February in our pack. I am helping out this year by creating centerpieces.
The theme of this year's dinner is Western and I thought the new Mandela Doily die looked similar to designs I've seen on bandanas. These centerpieces are essentially card toppers or simple lollipop cards. I taped skewers to the backs of each and then finished the backs by gluing another piece of card stock, sandwiching the skewer in the middle. I added sand to the bottoms of mason jars so the skewers would stay positioned in the direction I wanted.
Before assembling, I used a makeup sponge and distress ink to age the edges with a little ink. The distressing helped tie the blue and gold colors with the western theme. After I adhered the skewers to the stars, I thought they'd be great done in pink for a girl's birthday and could double as wands.
