Gift Card Bouquet Grad Gift

Hello!  Today I am taking a break from packing and doing laundry to write a short post on the grad gift that I made for my sister who graduated from high school yesterday.  2 years ago I made this gift card college survival kit for my brother when he graduated from high school.
I decided to stick with the gift card theme but this time I decided to make a gift card bouquet.  I started by buying a nice tumbler from the bookstore of the college that she will be attending in the fall.  I bought a bunch of gift cards for different things that might be useful or fun during her first year of college.
I slipped a piece of floral foam inside of the tumbler.  Next I traced the gift cards onto some scrapbook paper and cut out the pieces ( I totally forgot to take a picture of the back of the bouquet so that you could see it).  I taped a bamboo skewer in between the piece of scrapbook paper and each gift card.  I then stuck the bamboo skewers into the floral foam.  For the graduation cap I used some sparkly black scrapbook paper.  Normally I would of used my Silhouette Portrait to cut it out but I assembled this at work so I just found a picture of a graduation cap on Google and printed it and traced it onto the scrapbook paper.  If I wanted to be a little more fancy I could of put something decorative over the floral foam but I was running out of time so I just left it as is.

I hope you are inspired by this simple grad gift!  We have about 2 weeks left until we move into our new house so I have been spending a lot of time packing up our house.  The appraisal on our current home went well and it appraised at the selling price without any need for repairs.  We still have about a week until the appraisal on our new house.  It will really be cutting it close with the closing only a little over a week later.  I am hoping for the best though since it took a week to get the results of the appraisal on our current home.
