Congratulations Sign

We were asked to make "secret locker signs" to congratulate our fifth graders for completing elementary school.  The signs will be hung during the last week of school.

My daughter has a very bright and sparkly personality, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that in her sign.


The colors are not nearly as bright and vibrant in the photos.  The background is a neon green mounted on black and the graduation cap is hot pink with black flocked zebra stripes.

Materials:
  • Cardstock (neon green and black)
  • Glitter chipboard letters (DCWV)
  • Assorted adhesive "bling" (The Paper Studio)
  • Paper flowers with gem centers (Flora Doodles by Petaloo)
  • Embroidery floss (tassle)
  • Large rhinestone brad (The Paper Studio)
  • Flocked cardstock (The Paper Studio)
  • Cricut
  • Wild Card cartridge
  • Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz
  • Foam squares (under graduation cap)
