Graduation Countdown Flower Pot

I really wasn't sure how this would turnout. A friend of mine asked me if I would make a graduation countdown for her niece, who is graduating this June.

The idea behind it is that once a day, her niece will pick one of the flowers from the pot and read the little message inside written by her mother or other family members.

We told her mom, who is struggling with the idea of her daughter graduating, to try to keep the messages positive.

No "I will be lost without yous" and definitely no "Please stay a little longers." After she picks all the flowers her graduation will be the following day and then she will get to read the graduation letter that looks like the rolled diploma.

I used the Everyday Paper Doll cricut cartridge for the caps and the Disney friends cart for the pawprints. Each card is a 2x4 strip folded in half. They all have a slit in them to slide the cards on and off the sticks.

I was told that the graduate liked it so much it ended up on Facebook in less than 10 minutes.

Now that's a compliment.

Very awesome. At first I thought they were brass knuckles and thought what kind of school IS this? But they are paws. Phew!
