Graduation 2012

It's that time of year.  Yup, the time of year that makes you feel old as you watch children that you've watched grow up graduate from college!  How does this happen?  I'm certainly not aging at the rate that they are, right?
But, it's a wonderful and joyous time, so congratulations to all of you graduates!
The patterns for this gift came from my favorite place, SVG Cuts (as if you couldn't tell from most of my posts).  It's from their Graduation Day SVG Kit. Here's the card.  It is designed just a tad different, and I have to say that I swiped this design and the poem from a fellow paper crafter, Brigit Mann.  She's so talented.  You can visit her blog to see her brilliance at Brigit's Scraps.
And, this is the graduation cap box.  It's surprisingly easy, and just adorable.  I filled it with black tissue paper, some little candies, and some $$$, which I rolled up like a scroll and tied with ribbon.
SVG Cuts provides tutorials for their projects, which include instructions to make the tassel.  I added the charm with the Epiphany Crafts tool and charm settings.
And, that's it for today.  Best wishes to all of you graduating high school and college students.  May your future be bright with opportunity.

Here's to the Future!
