Congratulations to the Graduate...

Happy Saturday Fellow Crafters,

Congratulations to the 2018 Graduates. Today's post features a gift bag and coordinating card for the special graduate in your life.

The shaker gift bag, using the Tagging Along die, is a perfect way to present the graduate with money, jewelry or other small trinket. To create the bag's shaker front, I die cut the Tag Stacklets 1 from Mulled Wine and Sugar Cube cardstock. The Sugar Cube tag was embossed using the Corrugated embossing folder. The shaker material is created using the Little Bits-Grad Confetti and metallic sequins. An acetate window, adhered to the Mulled Wine tag and foam tape to create a pocket for the shaker bits, is attached to the Sugar Cube tag. The shaker window is then adhered to the front of the gift bag. Three stacked graduation caps and encouraging sentiment complete this gift bag.

The coordinating card uses the Matchy Matchy-Grad stamp and die combo and Block Party-Grad to create a simple and fun graduation card.

Thank you for visiting today. And to all the graduates, congratulations on your achievements.

Happy Crafting,

    1. Hello, Jan. Thank you for stopping by. I have used the Tagging Along box before and thought a shaker element might help to shake things up. =) Glad you liked it. Hope you are enjoying a little craft time for yourself. Hugs
