    Okay, I'm in card mode now. That being said, I really hope to get the exchange cards started today or tomorrow because now I really want to do it.

    First, here's the card I made for my niece's college graduation this weekend. She's graduating from BU, so I used the school's colors (scarlet and white) for the cap, paper, and tassel (even though her tassel that she wears will be a different color).

    I had to refold the paper a couple of times, and that makes me unhappy. But I had already done everything else, so I couldn't switch it out. I'm hoping the creases flatten in the mail.

    I made the tassel myself, and the string rope I used is very slippery. I didn't have yarn. It will survive the mailing and opening, but if it's handled a lot, it will fall apart due to the slipperiness. That bums me out.

    Outside - the tassel wraps from back to front

    Front (the part you open)


    Back (I had forgotten to trim the ends of the rope before I took this picture but it's better now)


    Inside



    And a link to the instructions so you can make your own

    Then, backtracking a couple of weeks, the Mother's Day cards I made. I used transparency paper and one was landscape, the other portrait. I cut a flower and threaded a ribbon through it on the inside, so you can see it on the outside. The pictures aren't great, and I was in a hurry when I took them and didn't look at them for over a week after. I would have retaken them if I had known the pictures weren't great.






    The poem on the inside (I can't remember the author but I found it online)

    "Happy Mother's Day" means more
    Than have a happy day.
    Within those words lie lots of things
    We never get to say.

    It means I love you first of all,
    Then thanks for all you do.
    It means you mean a lot to me,
    And that I honor you.

    But most of all, I guess it means
    That I am thinking of
    Your happiness on this, your day,
    With pleasure and with love.

    Oh! I love the graduation card. I wish I'd have made one like that for my sis. And the mother's day cards are really sweet. Love the poem you used! I saved it to my lift folder for next year.

    I really like the graduation card. I'm going to use it for my cousin's graduation and should also make one for Hayden's kindergarten and Xander's preschool graduations.

    Your mother's day cards are very creative. I've seen several things with the clear covers ... very cool.
