Grad Party Gift

I am heading to a Grad Party today and thought hmmm...maybe I'll make a card then thought maybe I will make a 3D creation for the graduate.

So here is what I came up with ~ it’s a gift box at the bottom and added the 3D Graduation Cap which I plan to fill with goodies and I added a 3D M for not only the grad’s initial but also the school mascot (Mustangs). I used the school colors throughout the project.

So here is how it all came together:

~ STEP 1 ~

 Started with the Glove Box from the Mothers Garden SVG Kit from SVG Cuts. I cut it at 100%.

I added a ribbon in the dark purple. Papers are from Basic Grey Shine On. I picked it up at Joanns - was so excited to see Joanns carrying Basic Grey 12x12 paper pads!

~ STEP 2 ~

 Cut and assemble the Grad Cap from SVG Cuts’ Graduation Day SVG Kit. I also cut at 100%.

It cut perfect on my Sizzix Eclips & I watched the assembly video which also gave tips on creating the tassle from embroidery floss. It was so incredibly easy to put together. I am going to put some candies in the cap.

~ STEP 3 ~

 And last but not least thought it needed a little something to balance out the design so I cut a 3D “M” from SVG Cuts’ 3D Letters Kit. This is about 3" high.

I adhered the cap box and 3D M to the glove box with hot glue.

 If you are going to a grad party try one of these for the graduate!

Have you spotted the latest kit from SVG Cuts? 
Oh it is just perfect for all your summer crafting projects. 

Have a great weekend!
