I love the look of punch art, but I'm not very good at it... I can take all the same punches and put them in all the right places just like anyone else, but it still just looks like a heap o' punches when I'm done! I just do not have talents in that direction. I was tickled when I saw this cute and EASY graduation hat idea at the WI Stampers Regional and adapted it for this card we'll be making at my clubs this month.
The hat is half of a Wide Oval Punch (now called Extra Large Oval, #119859) with a simple topper of a 1/4 inch wide strip. That's it! The tassel is easily made by grabbing a thread and pulling to unravel a 1/8th-inch Taffeta Ribbon up to a knot you tied. And we have that size ribbon in all sorts of cute colors, too, so you can really customize the tassel to suit the school's colors.
The Pure Gumption graduation stamp set is my favorite graduation set we've had in my time as a demo. I love the sayings. The price in clear mount is just $12.95 for 4 sayings and the little hat. Order it now at www.lyssa.stampinup.net!
