Amy writes, "We just had our Blue & Gold Banquet a few weeks ago, and I wanted to share what I made for an Arrow of Light award for one of the boys.  I do vinyl, so I cut out the arrow of light symbol and then customized it with his name and date he was awarded it.  This is a 5x20 board painted navy blue.  I also made the arrow out of a dowel rod, a flint arrow head from Hobby Lobby, fake feathers, and resign string lashed around the arrow point and feathers.  The colors strips are just strips of vinyl- the different colors represent the boys rank advancement and arrow points earned throughout his years in cub scouts.  I used brass tea cup hooks to mount the arrow with.  The boy who received this just loved it and it was a nice thing to present to him.  If anyone is interested in the vinyl I do sell it and they can contact me.  The cost of the arrow of light vinyl is $6.00 - and if they want the personalized lettering, that is $2.00. Colored strips for an arrow are also $2.00."

    I really like this. I'm putting you in my favorites incase I'm ever in cubscouts again.

    Thank you Amy! We used this idea for our Arrow of Light Ceremony and the boys loved it. We changed the white lettering font and left the date off since they all earned their awards at different times, but they went over huge! Thanks ;o)

    This is a great thing for the boys! The Arrow of Light (pictured) can be used in a lot of ways. If you have a cutter and need the vector, shoot me an email and I'll send you it!
