I'm back, it's a busy time of year for us with graduation today, parties, prom and more, I thought I would share a quick craft with you before I start my day! We decided to have a bbq/party for my daughters graduation from high school and the first step was to pick a date and make invitations. For my son I used his photograph and make a diploma invite but my daughter didn't want a picture on hers! So..... I chose an image of a grad cap and gave it an Andy Warhol inspired look. My daughter is a keen artist and we have many pieces around the house. I also added a tassel for pulling the invitation from it's envelope. I made the tassels and thought I would show you how as they can be used in all sizes and for different projects.
Picked up some embroidery thread- could also use yarn.
Cut 15 threads about 7 inches long - size depends on project needed for.
Fold the threads in half and tie together with a loop
Tie around the tassel about an inch below the top to create shape
Finished tassel- now add to card.
Come to a party! Happy Graduation!
If your'e not a card maker, how about these cute ideas for using tassels.

On a recent visit to Montreal and an awesome architectural salvage store " Spazio" I noticed a couple of great vintage medical cabinets. They are a huge trend right now and anyone lucky enough to find one at a good price I envy them. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours and are so versatile and cool! They are perfect for storage and you don't need to be in the medical field to use them!

I also found this gem at one of my favourite haunts Tinbarn Market in Almonte. It makes an amazing industrial chic bathroom vanity.
I also took a trip to good old Pinterest and found some other places to use these medical marvels. Are any of you lucky enough to have one of your own? I would love to see. . . . . .
