Giant Diploma Graduation Gift DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

What could be more appropriate to give a new graduate than a GIANT diploma?!  It’s so easy to make – then fill with what every new graduate really needs – tons of good luck. The possibilities are endless, but some of the lucky items you could include are a 4-Leaf Clover set, a giant lucky penny, an elephant, a frog, an acorn, some lucky dice, and of course, some Lucky Charms.

Materials needed: large cardboard mailing tube, white paper large enough to cover the tube, tape, red ribbon, scissors, assorted ‘Gook Luck’ gifts

Step 1: Cut a large piece of white paper to the same length as the cardboard tube.
Step 2: Tape the paper to the tube and roll the paper around it.
Step 3: Tie with red ribbon.
Step 4: Curl the edges with scissors so the corners of the paper splay out a little bit.
Step 5: Fill with goodies and give to your proud graduate.

    Escreva mais, isso é tudo que tenho a expor.
    Literalmente, parece que você contou com uma inspiração para executar seu matéria.
    Você certamente sabe o que você está falando, por que jogar excepto
    a sua inteligência em apenas depositar vídeos para o seu site quando você poderia estar nos dando um pouco esclarecedor para articular?
