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!
