BC is one of the Webelos leaders in our pack. Troop? Herd of scouts? Whatever…you get what I mean, right?
This means that the responsibility for making some sort of plaque for the boys receiving this award has become mine. The pack/troop/herd gives the boys an arrow along with this award. It was previously tied on with twine, but during my extensive Google searching, I saw some with cup hooks, which I liked MUCH better. So, here’s what the boys are now receiving:
(Last name blurred for bloggy purposes)
BC has a crate shop at work and therefore TONS of 1X4 scraps. This is a 12” board. I painted it a scouty blue (cheap acrylic craft paint) and then applied the Arrow of Light vinyl. I’ve uploaded the Silhouette Studio cut file I created for you here.
I managed to get eight arrows on a 12 X 24 piece of vinyl, which runs about $2 where I get mine locally.
So far we’re in this free wood, paint I already had, plus 25 cents worth of vinyl. The cup hooks come in a pack of 100 for just over $4, so another 10 cents there. And then I add the boy’s name and the date in white vinyl at the bottom. So far I’ve managed to just use scraps for this, but I’d guess you’re using 10 cents of vinyl for that as well. Grand total? 45 CENTS. Nice, right?
I mass produced them last week so I can just add names over the next little while:
So, if you’re a Scouter in need of an Arrow of Light plaque, this is a quick and inexpensive one!
