Celebrate!

Looking for great Father's Day and Graduation ideas?  You've come to the right place!  The Dottesses have been working hard to create Father's Day and Graduation Day crafts for our blog hop with Buttons Galore & More!

 




Whether your graduate is finishing college or high school, now is the time to celebrate the sweetness of youth and the prospects of potential prosperity!
Create a fun candy lei with a few products from Glue Dots © and Buttons Galore & More.


Every graduate would love a bit of cushion in their wallets!
Spice up tens and twenties by folding them into origami shapes
and add them to your lei.
If you can create accordion fold, you can create rosettes and butterflies.  
Use Removable Glue Dots © to secure edges on the rosettes and the butterfly, 
as well as adhering them to the necklace.  
These buttons are from Buttons Galore & More's Portrait collection.


Tip:  If fun sized chocolate bars are your candy of choice, use Removable Glue Dots ©
to line up the candies along your celophane!


Tie sections of candies with curing ribbon...
Embellish with buttons!





Other grads want to stamp out in a crowd. 
And let's face it, grandma is going to pick you out faster in that sea of black if your cap has some personality on it.
Show your style, what college you are attending, or where your next horizon lies...
Be sure to use more Glue Dots © to secure paper cut outs, flowers, rhinestones, etc...
The sky's the limit for this year's graduates...
