Grad Hat Cards

 This cute little Graduation Hat is made from a Diamond Fold card.
 
Using a 4 x 12 " piece of heavy cardstock/designer paper.
 
I made the tassels myself using embroiders thread.
 
And added a gorgeous embellishment to secure the tassle with some glue.
 
Computer generated sentiments and stamped with stars in gold metallic ink.
 
The scroll was fussy cut from another digi stamp, which you can see here and more grad hats here:
 
 

 
There's room for a small message...die cut from one of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis die




Sometimes it not a guy girl thing...but the receivers favourite color. And then sometimes you can accommodate the school colors into the hats.
Note the play on words: ConGRADulations.


 
The topper here is a botton I found in my stash...it could actually be an antique button. I just snipped off the little ring on the opposite side and glued it onto the hat. The blue colors where a little dark for my likings, so I added some wee little butterflies stamped in archival white.
