Graduation Party in a Box!

Graduation Party in a Box

My friend Amy, from Mod Podge Rocks, created a bunch of fun items to create a sort of “Graduation Party in a Box” and I really wanted to share this with all of you! While I don’t have a kiddo graduating from high school anytime soon, I know a few of you might have a kid, significant other, or friend that’s graduating from college or high school and this little kit will be perfect for your party! All the printables are free and she shared how to make a couple of adorable cake plates and a graduate frame. Just add my fortune cookie cash jar and you are all ready!

Cute, right?

Easter is coming up this Sunday, so maybe this will inspire you?
