Congratulations Graduate! 5 Days of Baby Buddies with Treasure Box Designs!

I am so excited to be teaming up with Treasure Box Designs again for another 5 day series of inspiration using files from the TBD store.

This time around we are sharing

I want to show you some really fun ways to use these files on cards and maybe on some other projects over the next 5 days. Baby Buddies will look awesome on baby projects for sure and some time this week I will have a project or two showing just that, but I also want to show you some other ways to use them. Today's card will show you a fun way to use them for a graduation theme.

Today, I used the Baby Buddies Elephant and made this cute Congratulations card for the upcoming graduation season. Any of the Baby Buddies would look so cute decorated with a graduation cap. 

I cut my graduation cap using a die, but you could use the Grad Kids file for your cap. Once you figure out what you are going to use, then size your elephant accordingly so that your cap will fit on his head. So easy and so fun. If one of the Baby Buddies files - like the Lion or Tiger - could represent the school mascot, that would be really cute on the card. My school mascot was a bear!

You can get the Baby Buddies Elephant and Giraffe file here

And you can get the Grad Kids file here.

Prize Alert!!!

Now what would 5 days of fun inspiration be without prizes. One lucky comment on this post will win one Baby Buddies file of choice. There are 8 files to choose from with 2 animals in each file. 

How to WIN:
1. Leave a comment here letting me know what your mascot was/is for your High School and, of course, add any thoughts you have on today's project. 

That's it!!! Tomorrow I will announce the winner at 5:45 pm eastern time.

And then be looking at 6 pm for tomorrow's project using another of the fun Baby Buddies files.

Thank you for joining us!

Too darn cute!!!!

I graduated high school so long ago, I don't remember having a mascot. My twin daughters had an Ugly Eagle as their high school mascot. Why it was called an Ugly Eagle is beyond me.

Also, my granddaughter has loved elephants since she was a baby. The elephant grad card would be perfect for her High School Graduation this June.
