How to Make a Gradutaion Cap

This owl is wearing the Graduation Cap we will be making!

Here is what you will need:
  • 1 1/4" x 1/34" black card stock
  • Ruler
  • White gel pen
  • Cutter
  • Key Tag Punch
  • Tape or glue
  • Brad and ribbon

1. Mark each side of your rectangle at the half way points.

2. Draw lines connecting your half way points.

3. Cut along the lines. It should look like this now. (You can throwaway the little triangles).

4. Now punch a Key Tag out of black card stock and cut about 3/4" off one end. (You can throwaway the bigger piece).

5. Tape the two pieces together so it looks like a graduation cap.

6. You can add a brad in the center of the cap and some frayed ribbon (click here to see my tutorial) to make a tassel and you are done!
