MCT 3D Wednesday: Patriotic Grad Gift

by Veronica

If you haven't heard, my oldest nephew, Mitch, graduated from high school this month. Where has the time gone? I've already created his card, but wanted to make a special little something to put his gift in. This is a pretty small box, but we should have no problem fitting his gift inside. What does every grad want? $$$$ *giggle*

Mitch's high school colors are red, white and blue (Go Saints!), so this little patriotic box is PERFECT for him!

MCT Products Used
You're Brilliant Stamp Set (light bulb die, inside of light bulb stamp)
It's All About You Stamp Set (sentiment)
Here's Lookin' At You Stamp Set (graduation cap die)

The graduation cap was cut twice so I could layer the tassel in another color. I just cut a little extra of the cap to allow the tassel to reach the center of the cap and then attached a silver brad. I also trimmed the bottom of the graduation cap to fit the light bulb.

The sentiment was embossed using Versamark and white embossing powder.

Check out Emma's blog to see what the other designers have in store for you today.

I hope you were inspired!

  1. Your gift box is amazing ... wow you did an awesome job!! I would love to know how you were able to make the graduation cap bigger as I have this die. Congrats to Mitch!! Best of luck to him for a bright and fantastic future. Thanks for sharing your talents and girl you are so talented.

    1. Hi, Joan!

      Thanks so much for your sweet comments (all the time!!!). I just love reading them!

      The grad cap is actually original size. The photo makes the box look larger than it actually is. In real life, it's only 2 inches wide. Hope this helps!
