They were charged with making centerpieces for a dinner and the boys in the den had to be involved in making it and of course Stampin' Up to the rescue!
My husband picked the colors- Night of navy and Summer Sun (retired) cardstocks and I used Designer Rosette Bigs XL die for the Bigshot to diecut and crease the cardstock. The boys had to mountain and valley fold the cardstock and taper it closed with sticky strips and then help hold it while an adult hot glued the piece together. I downloaded some images of boyscout icons and printed it out on photo paper for them to cut out or punch using the circle punches. The big ones used 2 strips taped together.
The container is the nut container from costco painted gold inside by the boys, stuffed with a foam shape and stuffed with gold fold paper I had left over from a gift I received, cut using the fringe scissors to make strips.
