I’ve recently fallen in love with Cricut Party Foil and decided to create the cap’s tassel with a touch of sparkle. You can create these gift boxes in an array of colors, which of course, I had to demonstrate both a traditional black graduation cap and some playful hues as well.

Below are the supplies you will need/want to create your own graduation cap gift boxes.

  1. These are so fun! Thanks for the free download – I am using them for my kindergarten’s graduation party.

      1. I had printed out the templates on my computer for the graduation boxes and they are not the 4 inch size. I have also tried to get back into your site and it keeps wanting me to put my password in again and again. Could you email me the link so I can print the patterns off again. Like I said, they don’t print off at 4 inches. Thank you!
