more grad stuff…(includes chocolate!) :0)

Happy Thursday…it’s almost the weekend!  :)

Since I posted grad cards yesterday, I thought I’d post some other little grad stuff I made. 

How fun are these drinking straw flags?  They were pretty easy to make.  I just made the shape I needed in a light gray background color using Photoshop Elements.  Then I added the letters and year in a font called Varsity.

And what party would be complete without chocolate??  Here’s two different projects. 

A covered Hershey bar (with a hole cut out to reveal a few of the letters)…

and some Hershey nuggets adorned with grad caps….

The grad cap stamp on the Hershey bar is by Stampendous.  It was embossed with silver e.p. and then colored in with a black marker.  The words were printed with the CK Cheer Squad font and punched out with the small SU! tag punch.

I can’t find the websites now where these were inspired from…sorry!  For the Hershey bar I just measured the wrapper for my own pattern.  I started with a 5 1/2″ square.  And I do know the measurements for the grad cap nuggets.  The top is punched with a  1 3/8″ square punch.  And I slightly changed the measurement of the strip to wrap around the nugget…it’s 3 1/4″ x 1/2″.  I made it a tad longer but I think it could be made a bit wider too.
