My Little Pickle and I were invited to an end of Cheer Camp show. Two of my former kindergarten students were a part of this camp, and on Friday they showed off cheers that they had learned, did their jumps, and more! I knew my Little Pickle would LOVE watching the "big" girls do their thing, and I couldn't go empty handed! So, I made them each their very own Cheer Sash:
I got the idea from a very creative someone on the Cricut MB. She had made Luau sashes for a camp (I went back to try to find her name and the post is gone?!)
I used my Gypsy for this project, and it made it so easy! I didn't have a cartridge with a "cheerleader" on it, so I used the "rocker girl" from Once Upon A Princess and did not add all the details. I also did not have any "pom poms" so I used the "lime" flower on Cherry Limeade and layered it for the effect!

The ribbon for the sash is 2 1/2" white ribbon from Michaels. The bows are made from Martha Stewart ribbon that was on clearance (a LONG time ago!), and the bling are Recollections jumbo brads. I used hot glue to glue everything down (even the sash under the bow), and lit the ends of the ribbons with a bbq grill lighter so that they would not fray!
My friend Hilary is here in Las Vegas for work, and is staying with us for a week (I LOVE to craft with her!). We decided to make a couple of these sashes for her girls. I know they will LOVE them!
