Desparate Stampwives/ Graduation Cap


OK, I do not watch Desparate Housewives, but I sure was desparate today. While waiting for my kids to finish at Vacation Bible School, I sat in my car stamping. Now before you think I am nuts, my Vibe's front passenger seat flips down and turns into a table. Voila, instant stamping area! In short order I was able to finish up a swap needed for the coming weekend.

This was NOT what I worked on. Here is a very fast graduation cap. Using the 1 3/8" square punch on black CS, a gold brad, and yellow grosgrain ribbon. To fringe the ribbon, carefully cut the finished edge up both sides of the ribbon as long as you want the fringe. I used a paper-piercing tool to "pull" the loose horizontal pieces of ribbon off. Fluff ribbon. Done!

I can think of many uses for this grad cap: do it in school colors, link a whole bunch together to make a garland, package topper instead of bow, make a really big one as a wall decoration.

Tell me what you come up with for this quite quick cap!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
