The tassel’s worth the hassle!

Published May 9, 2012 by sweetcraftastrophe

So after a longgg hiatus I’m back to blogging! Let’s just say my last semester in college was hectic! Only 1 more class and a presentation left to go until I walk across that stage! It’s a major milestone and I am beyond excited for May 11th!

Most people don’t decorate their caps but since I am a fashion merchandise major it only makes sense to add some flair via Lilly Pulitzer, pearls and a monogram.

Ok so I started off by creating a monogram in Microsoft Word and it was soo easy! I started by downloading the “Monogram KK” font and then used that for my initials. You can download the font for FREE! yay! Download it here! http://www.fonts2u.com/monogram-kk.font 

  1. Lay out all your supplies (x-acto knife or scissors, self adhesive pearls,Lilly Pulitzer print or whatever you like,glue, cardstock and Martha Stewart white glitter)
  2. After creating your monogram go ahead and cut it out with the x-acto or scissors
  3. Then take your monogram and liberally sprinkle the glitter (This is my fav part!)
  4. Let that dry for a few hours
  5. In the meantime, measure the cap’s dimensions and glue the pattern onto cardstock and let dry
  6. MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A SPACE FOR THE TASSEL!
  7. Once everything has dried glue on the pattern onto the cap and then glue your monogram on as well.
  8. Finally, it’s time to apply the pearls and voila you are done!

 Here’s the finished product!

Have a sweet day!

Get It Done!

Morning dolls!

How was your NYE? Eventful and safe I hope! Today I’m finally back and ready to get into the swing of things again. So in spirit of the new year I am dedicating this post to all things organizational.

Fun fact: every minute invested in planning will save you 10 minutes down the road
Personally, I totally support this because planning your week gives you a clear image of what you have to do and when plus this allows you to squeeze in some time for random activities. It saves so much time and reduces stress which is what we all want!
Here are a few designs to choose from for your weekly planners! Make it fun and color code each activity or person in your household! So find your fav planner and make this year as productive as you can!
