It’s graduation season and we had two parties to go to last weekend. The minute I saw this great idea on TheLetter4 I knew I had to make these adorable soda graduation caps to bring to these kids.
This was so fast and simple! I cut out card stock squares – I found 2.5 inches worked best – and a length of gold embroidery floss. I tied a knot in the floss and then glued it to the card stock with a glue gun and then I glued the mini mortar board to the bottle cap. I used black card stock for the soda with black bottle caps and white card stock for the soda with white bottle caps. I could only find Jones Soda for sale as singles so I used a galvanized bucket for the boy’s party and a plastic pail for the girl’s party. I put a card with some money in each one and I think they made a really cute gift.
The other thing I did was make more of those graduation candy caps. I’ve made these before and blogged about them but they are so adorable that I have to show them again anyway.
They are definitely time consuming – and even a little expensive – but they are so cute and so worth the effort. My friend was pleased that I made these for her daughter and everyone admired them on the table and told me how clever I was. That’s something I always love to hear!
And now you can all go be clever, too. DIY Graduation gifts are a very good thing.
