Are you attending a graduation party? If so, check out this easy and thoughtful way to give little cash “diplomas” via a cute graduation hat mason jar! And the best part – you likely already have most of the items you need for this craft at home.
For this craft you’ll need:
*one piece of square shaped cardstock paper larger than the lid
*rectangle shaped cardstock paper long enough to fit around rim of lid
*double sided tape or glue
*crepe paper (streamers) for tassel
*one small button
*string or twine
*money for mini diplomas
*balloon curling ribbon
*gold coin chocolates (optional)
Directions: Tape or glue paper to lid. Wrap crepe paper around a pen and tape. Then slide off pen and tie a tight knot towards the top, leaving a two inch piece of string attached. Use scissors to cut tassels. Attach string to button and glue or tape to middle of the hat. Use a pen to roll paper money “diplomas”, securing with curling ribbon. Place gold coins and money in the jar and screw on the graduation hat lid. Give to a well deserving graduate!
