Graduation • celebrating big moments

graduation_cap_Banner+text

For all the hard work you put into these past years –
Classwork, homework, assignments, charts, graphs, science projects, spelling tests, presentations, field trips –
And so much more
You are going to wear your gown and decorated cap, stand in line with all your friends, walk your last steps in the school building, and start your wonderful journey in the big world.
I’m not sure I’m going to see all that – I’m probably going to share some tears,
of pride,
of happiness
of sadness
of worries of separation,
Like you (and I,too) cried on your first day of school.
All graduates who worked so hard –
You absolutely deserve applause and celebrations!

Graduation•Celebration•Decoration

For last year’s graduation party, I created this cute graduation cap banner.

I used glitter cardstock paper and cotton string for the tassels, and in about no time, we had a graduation party decoration.

Here is how to create it:

Mini Graduation Caps Banner

You will need:

• Colorful cardstock paper (I used “GLITZY” by DCWV brand)

• Cotton string in matching colors (the kind used for friendship bracelets works best)

• 3″ x 5″ index card

• Needle

• Scissors

• Small hole-puncher (optional)

 

Step-By-Step:

Cut the cardstock into 3″ x 3″ squares

Create a tassel:

Fold the index card in two – longways, and gently pull out the string,
about 20″ long.

Wrap the string around the folded card, leaving about 5″ tail.

String the edge through the needle.

Take the string off the card, keep in a bundle.

Hold the bundle in one hand and start wrapping the tail around it, about 4 times.

Push the needle under the wrap, to create a knot.
