Graduation Gifts

Do you have a special graduate that you would like to get a one of a kind gift for? The Memory Keeper box from Close To My Heart may just be the thing for you. It is a durable magnetic closure box that is designed to be the perfect fit to store and protect that cap and gown. The dimensions are just made for the mortar board and this box is even deep enough to add a couple of extra things, as well. Should your graduate not wish to use it for their cap and gown, it is still a great gift to hold special momentos from their school years. These boxes take just minutes to cover and with your special touch, can be unique from any other. Here are 3 samples of ones that I have recently made. I hope that you enjoy them!

Valentine Card Birdhouse Box

Our local homeschool organization hosted a Valentine Exchange and held a contest for each child to create a unique box to hold his/hers valentine's. My oldest daughter created this lovely birdhouse from a cracker box. All products are from my scrappin' stash and she used the Cricut to help cut her grass and mailbox. The birds, branch, leaves and hearts are felt. I thought she did a really neat job. (She took first place!)
{I know this is late for Valentine's Day...we've had a lot going on and I'm just now getting to post some things...sorry.}

You Rock!

This card was made using all Close To My Heart products. The colors are Black, White Daisy, and Cranberry.

Thank you card

This Thank You Card was made using Close To My Heart Cardstock and my Cuttlebug. I stamped the images with CTMH stamps using CTMH ink. Then, ran the White Daisy Cardstock through my cuttlebug and layered on Black Cardstock onto my card base. The flowers and ribbon are from an unknown source. All other products, CTMH.
