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)
