***UPDATE: In response to many requests, these invitations are now available in an affordable kit format. You can find them here: Eagle Scout Invitation Kit
I never realized what a big deal it is to reach the level of Eagle Scout until my brother-in-law, Patrick, became one many years ago. Since that time, being an Eagle has opened many doors for him and I've learned more about the Boy Scouts and what an incredible organization they are.
The first is an invitation to an Eagle Scout Court of Honor, the ceremony and celebration where one becomes an official Eagle Scout. I've been to a few of these and they have all been very impressive, so I thought I should create an impressive looking, formal invitation.
The band is snug enough to hold the wrapper closed, but still slides off easily to reveal the details inside. I love the foil accents found on many of the papers. If you are looking for an invitation to make multiples of, you will need a sticker sheet for each one, however the leftover stickers could easily be used to decorate the program and other items at the event, and would still be less expensive than getting things custom printed. The colors all coordinate, so you can mix and match the papers and stickers to maximize their value.
Next up is a layout which is a quick way to highlight favorite steps on the trail to Eagle all on a single page - placed in a frame or on an easel, it would be a nice decoration at the Court of Honor.
Love the detail on these stickers.
Thanks so much for stopping by. If you like these ideas, please feel free to pin them on Pinterest. For a few other Boy Scout projects, check here and here. You can also find a post about "boy" crafts here.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
