My daughter graduates from high school in a few days, and I wanted to give a few of her closest friends a little gift to celebrate. They’ve stood by her through everything, and as her Mom I really appreciate that.
Since they’re graduating and moving off in many different directions, I wanted to give them a gift that would remind them of their friends. Each of them have a similar wristlet, but with fabrics chosen with each girls’ personality in mind. The same, but different.
I was able to sneak in a giraffe print, a favorite of one of the girls. It’s inside, like her own little secret.
I used a mashup of this wristlet by Ayumi of Pink Penguin and this clutch by Anna of Noodlehead, then threw on a monogram just because.
What girl doesn’t like a monogrammed purse?
While I was at it, I made extra monograms for their gift bags.
(The tissue paper is their school colors.)
It’s so hard to believe they’re all grown up! I hope they’ll stay in touch with each other. I hope they’ll make their dreams come true, even when they change their minds over and over about what those dreams might be. I hope they’ll stay just as awesome as they are today.
Watch out world, here they come!
so cute! i hope my kiddos have great friends like that to have during high school..congrats to them
It is AMAZING how fast they grow! You’ll be going through this before you know it. And I’m betting your kids have great friends like this, too!
Those monogram bags are adorable~!
Thanks, Chris! They were a lot of fun to make, too.
