Creative Cutter Room - Graduation

Thank you for joining us for our new challenge! We saw some Beautiful Mother's Day projects during our last challenge!  We appreciate you joining us and hope you will join us for this next challenge!
Theme Graduation!

It is so hard to believe that graduation is upon us! The school year went so fast! Today is my little girl's last day of Practice Preschool. It also happens to be my son's 2nd birthday!

The project I made to share with you today is is mortar board hat box (made with Sweet Tooth Boxes) and a mini photo album that is the perfect size for the graduate to store the senior pictures from all their friends.
For the photo album I used my trusty Gypsy and Cricut Classic Font to create the "Class of 2012" word art. I started by working with the word Class. I grabbed my letters from my font cartridge, and while to the letters were still grouped, I zoomed in (hold the upper silver key and tap) and adjusted the spacing between the letters. I did this by tapping the button that looks like this "K_E" on the advanced tab until my letters were just overlapping. Then I welded them together. This allows me to cut the word out as a phrase instead of individual letters. I did the same with the word "of" and then welded that to the word class. I wanted 2012 to still have spaces between it so I kept the spacing given after grabbing the numbers from the cartridge and welded them to the bottom of "class".

Each page of the photo album can hold one wallet size photo. The graduate can also have his/her friends sign the upper page of the album. This will leave them with a nice keepsake consisting of a photo and signature/memory.

For the mortar board box I used Sweet Tooth Boxes and cut out the last box with a solid top. Then I simple cut an extra piece of cardstock 1" larger than the top. The tassel is cording tied together and strung through the center of the hat.

Cathie with CCR supplied the Design Team with some great paper, ribbons, a wall plaque, and embellishments to work with for this challenge.
