As I promised earlier…I'm back with with instructions on how to make the graduates!

Their bodies are made from just a piece of basic black cardstock punched with the 1 3/8 square and the arms are the word window punch. I use the same square punch to punch out the "V" sashes. Just punch a square and then go back over the edge of the outline (the negative image left behind) to get a small "v" shape. Does this make any sense?? It will…just keep scrolling down.

I heads are blush blossom cardstock punched with the 1 1/4 circle punch.

Now for the hair:

For the girl hair I punched out a large oval punch and then I punched just a "sliver" form the edge of the punched out negative image. Like this:



here's the shapes you get:


For the boy's hair, do the same but now with the 11/4 circle punch instead:


Now for the hat:

Punch a 13/8 inch square form basic Black cardstock. Then take the same 1 3/8 inch square punch and "notch out" the corners like this:

Do both sides to get it to look like this:

  Now use a 1 inch circle punch to cut out two ovals on each side like this:


Here's what it will look like after doing both sides:


Now you can stick all the pieces together and draw their faces in and give them a small piece of white cardstock rolled up with red ribbon for the diploma.

Like this:


Hope it all makes sense. If you have any questions please let me know!

Have a great evening!
