Happy Graduation!!!

Are you looking for a gift idea?  Here it is.....


First of all the Card was made using Hello Kitty Greeting (Graduate Hello Kitty) cut at 3.5 in. and Beyond Birthdays for (You did it) cut at 1.5 inch. I distressed it with Tim Holtz "Black Soot" ink and stickles in a few places. I gave the tassel a 3D look using embroidery floss. Add a little ribbon and a pop dot under the graduation cap and your done. The paper is by SU.


This is a gift card holder that was cut from Just Because at 3.5 in and the diploma was cut from Hello Kitty Greetings at 3 in. I just used the SU paper I used for the card for the background.


This is just a paint can. I covered with card stock that matches SU paper that I distressed using the same black ink.  I used Locker Talk for the word graduation. 

The graduation cap was made by taking my Crop-a-dial to punch a whole in the center.  I then cut the square with rounded corners from George at 5 in. and used my I-top to make the brad.  And last but not least is the tassel.  Again I used floss and ribbon that is tied around the brad. (see my blog for more instructions on the tassel)

Really adorable. Would be so cute for a kindergarten grad. I have this cart but no one to use it on yet. Would also be great for decorating a cake!!!!

katschriber said...

cool grad hat. for my twin boys open house, i bought a cheap white plastic garbage can from walmart, took the top swinging dome cap off, and made a giant grad cap for the top of the can. cut a slot large enough for cards to slip through and into the can. they each had their own with their names on it. wonderful and got alot of comments. and you didn't have to worry about the can 'running off'. they had their own garbage can when they went off the school!
