I'm graduating tomorrow! It still doesn't feel real yet. I don't think it will feel real until I'm actually living on a college campus in the fall. Anyway, I made my two closest friends a gift and gave it to them today (so I can finally show you guys the blog post without worrying they'll see it!)
I made several things to give to them. First, I made them each a macrame bracelet with hemp and pretty beads.
Then, I created a mixtape with some music I think they'll like (luckily we all share the same taste in music!) and a set of decorated clothespins that they can use to hang things up in their dorm room.
The main part of the gift was a notebook/scrapbook that I put together for each of them.
I found some pretty notebooks at Target that were perfect for decorating.
I had some photos printed and put them on the pages of the notebook, along with quotes, song lyrics, memories, etc...
This is how I wrapped up the bracelet; a glassine bag closed with washi tape and pale blue embroidery floss.
They loved the gifts, and I'm trying to save my tears for when we really do leave each other. We're all going to different colleges, and we'll be about 3 hours apart. Even though I am super excited about going to college, I'm going to miss Loli and Allison so so much!
