Hi, it’s me, Lily – again!

Today, we had Gavin’s T-Ball game. I saw my friend, Esther, there. After that I asked my mom and dad if I could have a play date with her and they said YES! I had so much fun with her. We dressed up, watched movies, had snacks and played games. Then, I had to go home and my mom and I made some GAK. I made turquoise, Gavin made green and Evie made hot pink. It was so fun!!

Today, I’m showing you something me and mommy made last week. You’re gonna throw your hats off for this idea – it’s Graduation Hat Toppers and Straws! Did you know I’m graduating on June 2nd from Kindergarten?? Then, I’m going to be a first grader!! You can make these if you kid is graduating from any grade. I think they’ll love them.

2. Then we hot glued the strips into circles. Then we put that circle on the bottom of our square and added to dabs of hot glue and held it there until it dried.

FOR THE STRAWS:

And to make the straws we just hole punched a hole in the middle of the square before we added the circle underneath it. The straw fit in it just perfectly!

I can’t wait to graduate and sing the songs we’ve been practicing. We are singing 3 of them – You are My Sunshine, Planting Seeds, and Start Spreading the News. It’s going to be awesome!!

Hi,
I was wondering where you order your tall cupcake liners? Also, do you order cupcake boxes from the same place?
Thank you for your help!

I don’t think you did 3 inch strips for the 2.5 inch hats. 3 inches is way to short for that big of a top. I’m trying it now and having to modify my strip length
