  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!

  2. Hi I am new to all this. I just signed up as a member and was wondering how to get the graduation hat box template as I can’t seem to find it. May I please ask for help. Thank you.

    Kind regards

    1. Yes, you can scale them larger in Design Space. If you want them to be super big you may need to opt for a 12 x 12 inch mat. 🙂
