Here's a fun and easy craft to help you or your loved one make a big statement on their big day!

It's crazy to think about how I have been in school my entire life and now it has suddenly come to a close.  I can hardly believe that I am finally graduating college and that it is time for me to start my career.  I always have to go out in style, so I decided to decorate my graduation cap with a little flair and a lot of bling.IMG_5526

 

Materials:

Graduation Cap

Ribbon

7 Packs of Self Adhesive Pearls (I only used 6, but in case they fall out I have extra)

Stick on Letters

Hot Glue Gun

Scrapbook Paper

Google tutorials on how to make a bow and be so confused that you eventually just wing it and create a bow your own way.


Step 8:

Marvel at how perfect and beautiful your bow turned out!

Everyone asks me why I put a "?" behind "Bye".  It is because I am unsure of where I want to go in life, whether it is going back to school for longer or even just exploring the world.  I don't want to be tied down to just doing one thing, so I put a question mark there to leave the future open for myself.


Graduating was an experience I will never forget, and I am so thankful that my family and friends were there to experience the end of this time in my life with me.
