Graduation season is in full swing. Chances are you know someone who is graduating from High School or College…or in my case…both.
Usually I tend to revert to the old card and money gift because let’s face it…it’s easy and May is a crazy busy month at my house. This year I wanted to come up with a similar “easy” gift, but one that was a lot more fun to give and get!
I made a simple cover for a Rolo candy bar to cover up the regular Rolo label. Then before I placed the cover on the Rolo’s I folded a $20 bill and taped it carefully onto the gold foil wrapper so that it could roll up into the cover with a little end sticking out.
I thought it might be really important that the money is obviously showing so that someone eager to eat the Rolos notices the $20 before crumpling it up and throwing it out as trash. That would not be good.
Then I simply put the Graduation label over the Rolos. Then I made a simple little Graduation Cap and added it onto the top of the Rolos. Tie a little ribbon around the Rolos in the color of the Graduates school.

To make the Graduation cap all you need to do is simply cut a rectangle strip of black cardstock 3.5 inches x 3/4 inches and a square 1.5 inches x 1.5 inches. Roll the rectangle up and glue it so that it fits onto the top of the Rolo. Then I added a silver brad on the top and then glued the top of the cap onto it.
That’s it. Pretty simple right?! Happy Graduations!
