Congrats Grad!!

The local high schools on Maui held their commencement ceremonies this past weekend and a few of Joel's wrestlers received their diplomas, so I was in need of some quick and easy gifts. Yes, it's been awhile since I graduated, but I do remember there's nothing a new grad wants or needs more than cash!! So I created several of these simple Graduation Money Holders. Verve's new Dare to Be You set is PERFECT for those little last-minute Graduation gifts!! If anyone is interested in instructions, let me know and I'll try to post something, but it's pretty basic! (sorry for the poor quality photos, something weird is going on with my camera and no amount of tweaking in photoshop made these look right!!).

Stamps: Dare to Be You (Verve)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla CS; Muirfield DP (SU)
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Corner rounder, circle punches, silver brads, chocolate chip ribbon (SU); Trio of Tags dies (Spellbinders)
