We are in full graduation mode around here with our daughter Sarah graduating this year. It's hard to believe since it seems like only yesterday when she was learning her ABC's.
Because graduation has been on my mind lately, I remembered several Graduation projects I did for Plaid a while back. It was last year actually and I just never got around to sharing them with you.... so now I will.
This is a gift card holder I made with an Altoid tin. It works perfectly! You can find the instructions here. It's actually one of the featured projects on Plaid's website this month. Oh yes, when I do a project for Plaid, I have to write the instructions too....Ugh! not my favorite part, but I guess rather important.
Here's the inside. Oh my! I think my pictures have come a long way since I took these. Today, I would have used a white background and better lighting!
Again, excuse the pic! This was actually my favorite graduation project I've done for Plaid...and for whatever reason they no longer have this one on their website. But, no worries, I always keep a copy of ALL the instructions I have ever written. So, with that said, you can get it here: Download Girls “Grad” Purse Memory Box Instructions
You will notice that I often use family names and photos in my Plaid projects. I wish I had this to give to Sarah for her graduation this year! Oh well, I'll just have to make another one :)
This was a cute project. I used two large wooden star cut-outs, drilled holes, decoupaged them, added small wood stars, pages, and festive ribbons...A little graduation autograph book, card, or photo album! You can find the instructions here.
Here's some festive hanging graduation stars. I made this with foam board, gift wrap, and of course, Mod Podge. I topped it off with ribbons and gold tinsel trim! Fun Fun! You can find the instructions here.
In my next post I'll share some pics of my graduate and an art piece I did for her dorm room.
Many Blessings until then xoxo,
