Graduation Cap

I know that Graduation is still a few months away but I actually have a graduation party to attend this weekend. So when I was on Holly's website and saw the graduation cap she made with the the Petal Cone I knew I had to recreate it.

Here is my version of the graduation cap. I used Basic Black Card Stock. I used a silver brad to hold the tassel. I know it looks black but that is because I rubbed Black Stazon Ink on it to make it black. Great improvise! I had these tassels laying around because someone gave them to me. I didn't know what I was going to do with them but now I know. This is perfect because my sister Alison is graduation from High School this year.

I will admit that I had a had time figuring out how to cut the petal cone to add the top of the hat but after I finally thought it through, it was easy. I have a couple more projects to share with you this week that use the Petal Cone so I'll be back.

Would you share how you added the top of the cap to the petal cone die? I've yet to completely figure it out, but then I do tend to make things a lot harder than they should be! I would appreciate it as this is a wonderful idea with graduation coming up. Thanks, Julie

I've been looking for some card design ideas for my niece's graduation this Friday (rush, rush, rush) and I chanced on your beautiful graduation card. Will you be willing to share how you attached the top of the hat with the cut petal cone? I have a Silhouette machine and I can make the template in the Studio software but I'm pretty sure you came up with a lot easier and easier way of attaching the 2 pieces together. Does this fold into a flat card? I have some neat stuff that I can share with you if you're interested. TIA! Gayle (http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/)
