Celebrate : Graduation

Posted by


Graduation season is upon us! Whether the student in your life is moving up in the world from middle school, high school, college (or in my case, graduate school: my sister graduates on Monday!), we've got what you need to help celebrate.


If you are throwing a party, a great project is this easy neon celebratory sign from last year's June issue of Living. It requires three simple materials: florescent artist tape, neon post-its, and a role of brown paper. Guests can write notes and stick them to the paper (before grabbing a cocktail!).


I like this twist on a simple gift from this month's issue of Living. Loved ones fill out tags to hang from an easy-to-care-for plant, perfect for the recent grad to bring to a dorm room or first apartment.


I love the idea of incorporating a tassel in the making of your gift or card. Learn how to tie a tassel here.

If you are throwing a party in a pinch, hit up our go-to source for party blanks Garnish and consult our party crafts and decorations gallery.
