Advice for the Graduate by Jamie Cripps

Friday, July 5, 2013

Good Morning!  Jamie back with you and today I am working with the Light Blue Double-Faced Satin Ribbon to create an entry way piece for a Graduation party!  I love that there are 196 colors of this Satin Ribbon in widths up to 2 1/4" in the store and other widths up to 4" can be special ordered!  With that many colors, you are sure to find a match for your school colors!

This will sit beside a large metal tree so guests can write their "keys to success" or their special wishes for the graduate on the tags and then hang them on the tree!

I started by cutting 9" lengths of the Light Blue Double-Faced Satin Ribbon and then tying them in bows.  I trimmed each of the ends at a slant.
I cut the tags and keys with my digital die cutting machine.

To create each tag:
1. Place a 5" piece of twine through the top of the tag.
2. Place your satin bow in the middle of the twine and tie the twine around the bow.
3.  Place the key through one end of the twine.
4.  Tie a knot in the top of the twine to hang.
