Blue and Gold


Every year, my son’s Cub Scout Pack has a silent auction for the Blue and Gold Banquet. Last year, I donated gift certificates for my cakes and a quilt I made.



I had found this great Cub Scout fabric and HAD to use it! I went to buy some more of the fabric and my Hobby Lobby isn’t carrying it! Ack!

I had some canvas on hand, so it was time to pull out the Silhouette!

Blue and Gold 2012… Can’t wait for the bidding to start!

scout law

I painted the canvas gold. Then cut out the Boy Scout Law with a variety of fonts. I placed the vinyl letters on the canvas. I then painted the blue. After it was dry, I peeled off the letters, and voila!

scout motto

I painted the scout motto in the same way with a metallic paint as the base. After painting the blue over the vinyl letters, I placed the vinyl trefoil. I then white washed the canvas. Once dry, the vinyl was peeled off. 

I turned the canvases over to the pack tonight and already have requests for more. How fun!


Have a great evening my friends!

Love, Whyt
