Graduation Frame created by OMC designer Whitney!


Supplies Used:
 

Twelve Timbers : 4”x6” Frame
Rangers Ink : Jenni Bowlin Acrylic Paint Dabbers - Fountain Pen and coordinating color  
Oh My Vinyl : Metallic Silver, Black and Transfer Tape
Kanban Crafts : Duo Mirror Reflective - Copper/Black
Cricut : Happy Graduation, Songbird, and Base Camp Cartridges
7Gypsies : Display Trim: Loops and Hooks - Antique Silver
Graduate’s Tassel


Instructions:
 

1. Remove the glass from the frame.
2. Paint the frame with Ranger Ink paint dabbers and let dry. Paint the entire frame black, or paint the sides the color of the graduate’s tassel or school colors.

Tip: Ranger Ink Paint Dabbers dry super fast and are quick and easy to apply.


 

3. With Cricut machine, cut out the following:

4. With “Happy Graduation” cut off the “Happy” so you are left with “Graduation.” Do not forget to cut off the dot to the “i.” 
5. Using transfer tape, apply the vinyl to the frame. Start with “2011,” laying one number down at a time. Then stick “Graduation” down at the bottom, bringing it close to, but not touching the “1”. Lastly, apply “Class Of.” Since these letters are not welded together, apply each one separately, but overlap them slightly so they are close together and they look welded. 
6. Ink the white edges of the graduation cap black and adhere to the top left corner of the frame. 
7. Adhere one antique silver 7 Gypsies hook onto the graduation cap and tie the graduate’s tassel on. 
8. Insert the glass and graduate’s picture in the frame for a perfect graduation gift!


Happy crafting!
