Last Friday night was the year end band banquet for our high school. As President of the Music Boosters, I was very involved in planning of the banquet. We had a mother who was very crafty who always made the center pieces each year, her last daughter graduated last year. I kept my mouth shut about doing something but they couldn't find anyone to do the center pieces so I finally volunteered. Our band travels to Florida each February and the last 3 out of 4 years we have done parades at Disney World so I knew I wanted to do something with a Disney theme. So I cut out characters which included Mickey, Minnie, Donlad Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Nemo, Jack Jack, Winne the Pooh and Tigger. (only showing Mickey in this picture, once I download all of my pictures I will post all of the characters here). I adhered a wooden skewer to the back of the character and covered it with a second base layer. Did the same with the "MUSIC TO MY EARS" saying and the music note (this was attached to floral wire). I took a 4" clay pot and filled it with crumpled paper and nestled a 3" Styrofoam ball in it. I stuck the skewers/wire into the ball. Covered with the shredded paper you use to put in gift baskets. The characters were cut to a maximum of 11" (some were smaller). These center pieces were a HUGE hit at the banquet. I am very pleased with the way they turned out.
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I have recently updated it and I am going to really try to update it several times per week. I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years and making cards on an off throughout that time. But in the last year I have really gotten into using my cricut for both scrapbook layouts and cards and that is what you will find on this blog along with various other creations of mine. Enjoy, stop back and visit often!
