Cub Scout Centerpieces

I was volunteered to do the centerpieces for a Cub Scout banquet. The theme is CIRCUS. I used a little Cricut, but I thought I'd share. The first one is a balloon bouquet. Each balloon has the name of the scout and the other side has a picture of a clown (all done in vinyl). I used a coffee can filled with sand as a weight. I punched holes in the plastic lid and just tied them through the holes, then put the lid back onto the can. I coordinated the base with the same clown.

The other centerpiece is a candy bouquet chock full of goodies. (The boys will get the goodies when the banquet is done) I used PC Crafter clip art "Just clowning around". Cut out a circus character for each scout and the leaders. Of course I had to vinyl the bucket.

Did you have any trouble with the vinyl "bubbling" after it had been on the balloons? The vinyl went on nice and flat, but after about a day I noticed a lot of bubbles in the vinyl. I don't know if it was because the balloons were slightly deflating (it wasn't very much if they were) or what. Just wondering if you'd had any trouble like this...

You are so creative! I'm sure the boys just loved having their names on the ballons. This gives me some great ideas for my grandson's 2nd birthday this weekend. Thank you for sharing.
