Graduation Time is Here

Got some Pomp & Circumstance happening in your home?  
Whether you'll be crying for joy at your child's
college commencement or kindergarten graduation,
here are a few great DIY ideas for handmade gifts. 
Create a one-of-a-kind graduation wall canvas, celebrating the great achievement.  Using scrapbooking techniques, I kicked them up a notch, creating a 3-D canvas that is proudly displayed.  Pull together your favorite photo from the big day, the graduation announcement, and coordinated embellishments.  For all the details, click here.

Fun party favors for Grads
What better way to say "I'm so proud of you" than with a jar full of chocolate?  Here's a fun idea that would make great party favors or for your child to give to their friends.  Grab a bag of chocolate peanut butter cups, a small hinged or mason jar, a few graduation embellishments, and you'll have those kids eating out of your hands (literally).  For the complete tutorial, click here.

Photo Projects for Graduation
A simple wooden frame can easily be embellished into a special graduation keepsake.  One quick trip to your local craft room (or arts & crafts store, if you prefer) to pick up a few graduation-theme accents, and you'll be ready to create this wonderful treasure.  Click here for the tutorial.

Graduate Gifts
For a little something extra, why not alter a mini chunky notebook for the new grad?  It may be too small to keep track of all their job interviews, but it will work well for them to jot down their summer to-do list.   And it's the perfect size to hold a gift card! The link is here.
Hope these projects inspire you to create your own handmade treasured memories for your special graduate.  Now pass the tissues...

And don't forget Father's Day is this Sunday.  
Here's another wall canvas project you 
and the kids can create for Dad.
