Next Step: Real Life

I'm sure you have been on the edge of your chairs just waiting to see how
this little $1 spiral notebook was transformed.  Well, wait no more. 
This 4-1/4" x 3-1/4" has been altered, despite its pocket-sized appearance.  Take a look:


Materials used include:
graduation-theme scrapbook paper
blue cardstock, stamped with graduation cap image
one small gold brad, yellow embroidery floss
square cutout chipboard
"Good Luck" & "Dream BIG" stickers
rosebud button, chipboard key
assorted ribbon, pink pearl bling
label maker, blue acrylic paint, Mod Podge
 

Put together with the photo frame and candy jar,
your graduate will cry tears of joy over all the work that went into this thoughtful gift ensemble. 
Yeah, right.  Who are we kidding?
Well, at least they were fun to make.   Pass me the candy jar.

  1. Perfection. At least our graduates understand that their graduations give us yet another reason to make things. Or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
