Graduation Card and Goodies

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  I wanted to share a couple of things I made for my niece's Graduation.  I found some scrapbook papers with my niece's high school on them at Bennion Crafts. (local) For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "School Days."  For the tassel on the card, I used cross stitch floss and a hair elastic to gather it.  I forgot to take a picture of the gift card inside the card.  It goes right below where the You make me proud sentiment.

I recently went to a scrapbook store called Just Bee Scrappin' and found these little containers that look like a to-go soup container.  I was going to wrap paper around it but because it decreases in diameter as it goes down, I couldn't.  So I made the little graduation bear from the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  It was cut at 3 inches.  Their school colors are orange and black.  I added an action wobble behind it.  I made the rosette on top and used the Stampin' Up! scallop punch and the 1 3/8 circle punch.  Inside the container are these little graduation caps with Reese's peanut butter cups.  I used a 1 3/4 square punch and added a brad and ribbon.

It was a wonderful ceremony.  I'm so proud of her!  She's been very busy finishing High School and taking CNA classes.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
