Hey, y'all! Last weekend was graduation around these parts, and my husband and I were invited to a few graduation parties. Of course, I couldn't go to the parties without a gift. I knew I wanted to give the graduates something special, preferably something they could use in their college dorms in the fall. I decided to use my trusty Silhouette to create a collegiate dry erase board for each graduate.
I bought a few really cute magnetic dry erase boards from Walmart. They were about $7 each.
I found a logo image online for each of the colleges the graduates will be attending. I saved the images and traced the logos with my Silhouette program just like I traced the feathers for my Geometric Feather Art.
I cut the logos from vinyl with my Silhouette. I weeded the designs and used transfer paper to transfer the logos from the paper backing to the dry erase boards.
I love the way they turned out!
I paired each dry erase board with a gift card enclosed in one of the Graduation Gift Card Holders that I designed. The graduates really loved their gifts! I hope that the boards will brighten their dorm rooms a little and help them stay organized. I know from experience that the first year of college can be tough, and anything that helps with organization can be sooooo useful! Come to think of it, I probably could use one of these myself to stay organized at school...
