Kindergarten Graduation Treat Bags

I cannot believe my First Born graduated from Kindergarten today! I feel like I've learned as much as she has this year. I got to know the kids in her class volunteering every week and when I was in the hospital, they all made me the sweetest cards. To thank them for being so wonderful, I made them all treat bags for graduation. I saw this and this and wanted to do something similar and eventually came up with this: It was pretty easy although a little time consuming. I wrapped a Reese's Mini Peanut Butter cup in black paper using a template I made and, with a 1 1/2 inch square punch, a small hole punch, a tiny piece of fuzzy ribbon and a small brad; made a mortar board top. Here are the steps for the "chocolate cupcake" as they're called in our family: And here are the steps for the mortar board: Then you tape the top on the PB Cup and the graduation cap is done! To accompany the cap, I cut a rolled wafer cookie in thirds and tied each piece with a ribbon to resemble a diploma. They were placed together in a baggie with a personalized topper. I was going to make them cuter adding their names with the Cricut and adding embellishments galore, but when it's the middle of the night, you've got to draw the line somewhere, right? I wrapped a Snapple box with some wrapping paper, through the baggies in and they're good to go! The children are getting these tomorrow and I cannot wait to see their little faces! It will be hard to say goodbye and I will miss hearing about their antics every day. I have a feeling there will be many play dates throughout the summer!
