Hello, crafters. Welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! In this video, I’m sharing a CAS graduation card with a DIY interactive tassel using the Grad Party stamp set from Cathy Zielske.

We are okay. We are located in the Western Ukraine. We continue to volunteer and help Ukrainian army in any way we can. You can read more about our efforts on the new blog – freeukraine2022.wordpress.com.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by figuring out a simple way to make a thread tassel for a graduation cap. The image in the Grad Party stamp set is a completely solid one, so if you stamp it in black ink, everything ends up black – the cap and the tassel. I wanted to have a different color tassel so I did a little bit of experimenting.

First, of course, I stamped the cap image in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto white cardstock. I cut the cap out using a coordinating die and that’s where the altering started. First, I used scissors and cut the tassel off. In this image there’s a gap between the tassel and the cap, so that allows for a very clean cut. There’s no leftover black ink and it looks like it was meant like that. I then poked a hole in the center – that’s where our tassel is going to go.

I used yellow DMC floss to make the tassel. Watch my video tutorial for a simple how-to. The process is similar to making a pop pom. I threaded the tassel through the hole in our graduation cap and secured the end with a foam square. A perfect mini graduation cap and colorful movable tassel!

I made 7 caps and positioned them somewhat randomly onto my background. I picked a light blue background as it goes well with the yellow tassels. I tried to keep the caps in 2 rows, but rotate and flip them, to add movement to this design. I stamped my sentiment – “Congrats On a Job Well Done” and another one that reads “You Did It”!

I adhered this panel onto an A2 card base and stamped small filler images in between the caps – little stars and dots. You can use any small images you have in your stash to add this type of filler to the card. Or you can even use a pen and draw some yourself. It is pretty easy!
Have fun stamping!

    1. Oh, Yana!! This is too cute! I don’t have the patience to make these tassels but they are cute… and I think the easiest way to make making the tassels simpler would be to have one person hold part of the threads while a second person ties the knot or wraps the thread around or whatever. I have a bunch of bookmark tassels that would be good for this…. but I have to find them. As a teacher, I give so many graduation cards that I would need literally dozens and I don’t have time at the end of the year to make many (or any!) so (GASP!) I do actually buy graduation cards.
      Thanks and glad you are safe!! I watched an amazing video today from World Central Kitchen and chef José Andrés. He is astounding! So glad I contribute to his cause of feeding refugees. It’s something I can do to help the effort. I’ve been reading Denzil’s posts, too… thanks for keeping in touch w/ him.
