A young family member is graduating for high school this spring! It’s weird, because as far as we’re concerned she’s, like, 11 years old. Anyway, her school colors are royal blue and white, but their caps and gowns are dark blue. Their tassels are dark blue and white. I tried to match as best as I could from afar.
I used my Cricut Explore to cut files from SVGCuts.com. She includes instructions for making a tassel with embroidery floss in the assembly video.
The top is about 4.25" square, the box pretty small. It barely fits a gift card, but would fit other small gifts or treats easily.
I made the year charm using Tim Holtz dies on my Sizzix Big Shot. The base is a wee tag that I cut around the numbers with scissors to kind of replicate the charms on the graduates’ actual tassels.
