This month is full of graduations, I think I know 7 Graduates, so for my 3D project I decided to remake the Graduation box that I made last year but with improvements. Last year my lid kept falling off.
I used the Petal Cone die for the box. I cut the box at 2 inches so that the peak of the box was no longer there. I then attached a 3.5" x 3.5" card to the top. The Card opens up and a personal message can be written. Since Graduation gifts usually include money or gift cards I wanted the hat to open up so I made a hinge under the card with some card stock. I used a brad to hold the tassel. This project did come together rather quickly and I hope I am explaining this project well. Just in case you need a visual, I took some additional pictures for you to see just how this card/gift holder works.
Here you can see how the top of the hat is a card. The weight of the tassel keeps the card closed.
Here is the card opeded up. I put two pieces of Whisper White card stock on each side of the card, one to write a message or stamp a message to the Graduate and the second one to hide the whole and brad prongs.
This picture shows the inside of the box where the money/gift card can go.
I just love this cute Grad cap idea. It sure beats a regular ol' graduation card.
(I picked up tassels at my local Walmart in the craft area.)
Items Used: Big Shot, Petal Cone, Midnight Muse & Whisper White Card Stock, Brad, and a white tassel.
The Vintage Wallpaper isn't new but it is one of my favorite go to embossing folders. I embossed the Whisper White and then I used my brayer to add Summer Starfruit to the raised areas. I then cute a piece of Summer Starfruit with the new Apothecary framelit die, I stamped my Congratulations image with the new Layered Labels Stamp set, which was also die cut with the Apothecary framelit. After layering those together I used dimensionals to pop them up on the card. At the last minute I die cut the Butterfly and added him with a glue dot and a mini pearl.
