Graduation Gift

My mom needed a few graduation gifts recently.  She wanted something cute and crafty, that wouldn’t be too pricy to make.

Here’s what I made!

Here’s the original concept from The Creative Crate:

The Creative Crate includes a printable version.  I don’t have an awesome printer (well… any printer for that matter).  But I DO have a Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot 2.

I decided I wanted to use all cutouts – so I cut 2 sheets on the cricut (in gray), and then used the inverted letters as well!

I used a gluestick some and my skinny-tipped-glue (which didn’t work so well… it wrinkled the paper a bit).  I also cut the “bright” on yellow paper…. that was tricky because it was supposed to have holes. They were tiny, and because I may or may not be slightly stubborn, I used a toothpick to punch through each one.  I would recommend just not using holes.  What a novel concept…

I added flowers to the frame with sticky tack (mom didn’t want to wreck the frame)

Here’s the reverse image that I put up in my office:

Love it! I think they both turned out super cute!
