It is that time of year! Graduation!
I remember how excited I was to graduate, and I think that excitement will be ten-fold when I watch my kids get their diplomas. I have signed my fair share of disclosure documents!
Here is a quick and easy graduation gift idea for a special someone in your life.
- Core’dinations Core Couture 12×12 Cardstock (Glitter Black)
- Jewelry Box
- Embroidery Floss
- Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board
- Piercing Tool
- Tissue Paper
- Money/the gift you are giving
The first thing you will do is cut your cardstock into two (2) 1″x12″ strips, and one 4 1/2″x4 1/2″ square.
Adhere the cardstock strips to your box lid. The strips will be larger than the lid. Make sure the excess overhangs the bottom of the box. This is so the black cardstock will cover the entire white box.
Now we are going to make a tassel for your cap!
Find a scrap piece of cardstock that is the approximate size you would like your tassel to end up being.
Start wrapping your floss around the cardstock.
When the tassel looks nice and full, cut off your floss, and take a section of it to wrap around one end of the card of floss. (Make sure you use a large enough section of floss–this will be the tassel string.
Next, roll up your dollar bills to add to the box. You can personalize your gift any way you like.
Add tissue paper to the bottom of the box, and add your gift.
