Graduation Gift

Here is a gift I made for a graduation. I used their school colors. I didn't over do it as I knew that the graduate, being a boy, really wouldn't care about how it looked on the's what is inside that counts! LOL! I used my CRICUT to cut the font and the grad cap.  ***This is not a printable file. I have had quite a few requests for a printable file*** I used Alphalicious for the font and the grad cap came off of Locker Talk. The tag is a Creative Memories punch. The tassel came from the Dollar Tree. I stuffed it with money and candy.

To make this you just cut a sideways U shaped cut in the bottle. Fill it with what ever you choose and then cover it with the paper. All of the stuff you put in will keep the U cut from curling in.

I also made these as thank you gifts for Carter's teachers. They are also posted on the blog if you want to take a look. Just click on this link.  Thank you gift bottles.

Teacher gifts

Here are the teacher gifts this year. The cards went to Carter's speech teacher and small group teacher. I added a homemade bar of soap to the cards. (you can see the soap in the picture below). I used Doodlecharms for the apple and Fabulous Finds for the tag.

These are the goodies I added to the 2 liter bottles below. I altered a mini composition book, made magnets using my cuttlebug, altered a pen and added other goodies. I also added a poem that Carter signed, which I did not take a picture of.
Here are the 2 liter bottles filled with goodies! The butterfly was cut from the Wild Saffron paper stack by K and Co. I bent the wings up to make them look 3-D. The tag is from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I cut the leaf from the center of the tag using Design Studio. The leaf is from Straight From the Nest. The thank you cut is from Lyrical Letters.

Gracie's birthday card.

My niece had a Little Mermaid birthday and this is what I came up with. I used Disney's Dreams Come True cartridge.
