Graduation


Graduate Gift Card Holder and Box

Graduation Gift Card Holder and ...

Graduations are just around the corner, and what better way to surprise the graduate in your life than with a card and gift box all in one? This file was created using the matchbox file as a base. I added a section to the side which becomes the easel card sitting on top. I enlarged the file to cover my 12x12 mat so the card was a decent size. It also means that the box is large enough to hold a gift card or a jewelry box for example.


Pretty Birthday Card

Hi guys! It’s Belle here today sharing with you my version of Melin's PCW double square shaped with flowers card. I haven't done many cards lately so it was nice to get back into it. This card packs a punch with it's beautiful latticework and curved edges. Anyone would feel special receiving this card.


Grade School Scrapbook Layout

While talking to my friend the other day about her daughter's graduation, the following problem came up. She started to tell me that she realized she didn't have any completed scrapbooks or boards done for her daughter and she wasn't sure how she could get 18 years of books finished by the time graduation and her party arrived. She didn't know what to do. As we talked, I offered the solution of doing just one page per year with just her class photo on it. Then to make it even quicker and easier, she would just needed to come up with 12 color schemes and she could do the same basic layout throughout. She could then put them in an album for all to see or put them on boards for the party, and then when the party was done, she would have pages for a scrapbook.



Graduation Announcement

I can hardly believe my daughter will be graduating this year. Eighteen years just seemed to fly by. I got thinking about graduation announcements last week in preparation for her big debut into the world and began to put together a list of how many graduation announcements I would need to create. It added up quickly. I wanted to create a fun project, but not have it be so difficult or time consuming to make, especially if you have a large list of family and friends to invite like I do. I think this announcement card turned out perfectly. To create the tassel take several pieces of twine or ribbon about 8” long and fold them all in half. Secure around the top creating a loop. Feed another string through the loop. Poke a hole in the top of the hat and feed the string through the top of the hat. To secure it place, I used Scotch tape to make sure the strings would stay in place and hold the tassel.


Chalkboard Art Card

I just love the chalkboard look on cards. Inspired by a lovely saying that I found online, I created this note card using my Pen Tool. I created a perforated outline for the note card and then set my text in place. For my card base I used a 7" x 5" base. I used the draw tool to create two stars.


Congrats Grad Card

Hands Down Best Dad Bag

June is quite busy for some of you. Are there grads and dads that you want to honor? Pazzles can help. The Craft Room makes celebrations quick. I found several great files that help me celebrate these to special occasions. First I made some simple graduation cards. I even used the Print & Cut method to make my sentiments. For the cards I used the 2014 Photo Booth Hat and the Grad Girl files Next I made a small gift bag for a boy graduating.

Candy Bowties

Candy Filled Bow Ties for ...

My dad is a hard man to give gifts to. He really doesn't have any hobbies besides reading and attending all of his grand kids sporting events. Nothing themed ever fits the bill for his gifts. He doesn't hunt, fish, golf or do any of the other manly things fathers do. As a result he usually gets a new book or two and a treat for every major holiday. I've learned you really can't go wrong with candy. And although my dad doesn't wear bow ties either, this year he's getting his candy with a bit of style. There are two versions of today's project. The first is a simple tag to attach to a bag of candy. I've included tags sized for both the larger bags of candy and the individual sized bags.



Graduation Shrinky Dink Charms

Graduation is a wonderful time in one’s life. I thought I would make it more special by adding a little something to the basic graduation cap, and what’s more fun than charms. Inspired by the Charms video in the Building on the Basics section, I knew dangles or charms would be just the ticket. I remembered playing with shrinky dinks as a child so this craft also brought back fond memories. First I found two files in the Craft Room Graduate Photo Booth Hat and Hashtag 2014. I then used the replace by segment tool to draw a line to finish the cap and eliminate the graduate part since I just wanted a simple cap. I then used the techniques I learned in the video to make the cap and the hashtag into charms. I resized them to about to 7" for the cap and 9" for the hashtag.


Love Notes Mailbox

Here is a mailbox, just in time for Valentine's Day or as a special box to pass "Love Notes" back and forth between family members year round. It would also be great to add to a wedding table for envelopes.

Pennant Card

Pennant Card

I love this card for a couple reasons. First of all it is a wonderful way to use up small scraps you have laying around. Secondly, it can easily be adapted to any color theme which means it is easy to make this a girl card too! I also love that it is just classic and elegant. I hope you enjoy this second card in our Masculine Card series!


Origami Tie Card

June means a lot of things to me - half way through the year, summer vacation, and both Father's day and my father's birthday. So as we were thinking on projects for this month, I naturally started thinking about "man" cards. For most of us, manly cards are a struggle. There are so many options out there for girly things between ribbons, rhinestones, flowers and swirls; when it comes to the guys on the other hand I am often at a loss. Our team decided to face this challenge head on and bring you a series of masculine cards that hopefully will help you always have the card you need for the men in your life. We hope you enjoy this card series!



Party Cups

Custom Party Cups

Have you ever gone to the party store to buy paper goods for a party? I seem to want to take things up a notch especially for graduation and baby events. I have found myself wandering the aisles looking at all the great paper plates, napkins, cups and banners. I might even put them in my cart and then...I pull most of it back out again. It is so expensive! It also seems like I can never find the right colors of paper goods to match the graduation colors.


Graduation Cap Box

Describing Dad / Honoring the ...

Father’s Day cards tend to be either funny or sentimental and often the meaning is lost on young children. Cards for the graduate become one of many that are quickly discarded and forgotten. This week’s lesson shows you how to make a meaningful word book as a card for a grad or dad. The Grad card becomes a special memento of a milestone in the young person’s life by including pictures and copies of the graduation announcements, programs and school logo. The book has plenty of pockets to tuck a gift card or money and include pictures of favorite moments at school. The word books shown are a variation of the traditional word book and are a little less complicated to create.
