Stamp Set: En Francais, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray
Ink: Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Accessories: Owl Punch, 5/8″ Basic Black Satin Ribbon, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Dauber

Extra Instructions:
The diploma is made with computer paper (easier to roll).
Use dauber to ink edges of owl in basic black.
Wings are made with the scallop oval, just trip some off the top and place the whole thing behind the owl.
Dimensionals are behind the En Francais and black squares to make it pop.

Graduation Gifts

Here are some graduation gifts I made. I found the pattern on Nancy Morgan’s blog, which can be found HERE. This is a fun project!! The graduation cap is actually a box, and the “check” ($ gift) looks like a diploma. The card is a small 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.
