Graduation season is almost at a close, but I’ve got a celebration party this weekend so I made a simple card and mini tassel. The tassel is made with pink embroidery floss because pink is a favorite color of the Grad.
Here’s the how to:
Simple. I could see using these with tags to decorate gifts, flowers, etc.
The card is downloadable pdf I made and you can download. I printed it out on card stock, cut out the card and the banner embellishment. Then I used small foam dots to attach the banner.
Here are a few ideas and quotes I’ve gathered for the inside of the card:
The best way to predict the future is to create it. – Abraham Lincoln
Relish the Adventure
You can do anything you put your mind to.
You GO Grad
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams
Wishing You a Bright and Shining Future
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams – Eleanor Roosevelt
Reach for the stars
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. -Les Brown
The one real object of education is to have a man in the condition of continually asking questions. -Bishop Mandell Creighton
Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip. -Will Rogers
Graduation is not the end, it’s the beginning
The Tassel is Worth the Hassle.
The future lies before you
Like a field of driven snow,
Be careful how you tread it,
For every step will show.
Hitch your wagon to a star. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart. -Kongzi
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
