GRADUATION TENTS:Hello there! We survived the graduation yesterday and I wanted to share a few more ideas with you. I made 30 of these tents to scatter around on the tables to add a little color. I used Night of Navy, Crushed Curry and Whisper White Cardstock. I used a retired alphabet die along with the Big Shot to cout out the numbers. I used up the rest of my Crushed Curry Striped Ribbon and stapled it to the cardstock using the Handheld Stapler and Mini Staples. The stars were made with Champagne Glimmer Paper and cut out with the Stars Framelits.
The most time-consuming part of these was the little pompoms. I used the brand new Cotton Paper, along with the Fringe Scissors, and glued them around a toothpick. I made the pennants using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, which I just realized is retiring. I used the retiring set Embellished Events for the sentiment in Night of Navy ink. I finally broke down and got the stamp set just because of the cake, but I'm glad I'll get some use out of the sentiments too.
This was the centerpiece for Kevin's table.
I made the pennant using the retiring Metro Type Alphabet and Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon.
I finally had to put the gum glove in my purse, as Quinten was single-handedly trying to chew it all.
Here's Kevin's table. There's too much on it, but I had a hard time pulling stuff cuz he was just so darn cute and he wrote the funniest stories-I had to leave it all.
I had a memory jar for family & friends to write special things to Kevin and had to bring Lamby.
I covered the card box with his school colors and used the Hello You Thinlits for the sentiment.
We found these cool blocks at Target and made some fun photo cubes with them.
My sister and her hubby gave these out as birth announcements...
I thought they were so cute and clever back then, and they still are.
We brought a little bit of his artwork.
As you may know, I'm not a scrapbooker fan, but Project Life makes it less painful, lol. I used the Happiness Is Card Collection and Accessory Pack. These aren't very good pictures...I just posted them because I may need the ideas in case I ever have to do another one.
In case you're still with me...
This was alot of work crammed into 2 weeks and I'm really exhausted. I think I'm going to eat supper and go to bed. Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy your day:)
