Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1-1/2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Allow paint to dry between applications. Project time does not include drying time.
  • 2
    Use a Black marker to draw out a “stencil” message onto the top half of one of the foam sheets. For example you could write; “Congratulations”, “Way to Go!”, “You Made It”, or a personal message. Follow the StyroCutter plus package instructions carefully to cut out the stenciled message. Tip: It is important to trace the stencil exactly for letters with a center; e.g. “O”, “P”, etc.
  • 3
    Paint the top half of the stenciled sheet a desired color. Be sure to get inside the cut edges of the letters. Outline the letters with the White fabric paint.
  • 4
    Completely cover the fronts of the two blank foam sheets and the bottom half of the stenciled foam sheet with Midnight cardstock, using low-temp glue and glue gun to secure in place. Glue the Midnight cardstock to cover the back of the stenciled letters. Glue 1 inch Black ribbon around the outside of each foam sheet to finish off the edges.
  • 5
    Pin 2-1/2 inch x 3-1/2 inch Kindergarten – 11th grade pictures evenly spaced across the bottom half of the stenciled sheet. Use the White chalk to write the graduate's grade (K-11) above the corresponding picture and “Senior Year” at the top of another board. Use this sheet for senior year accomplishment images. On the last board place pictures of fun memories, sports, friends, etc.
  • 6
    Paint the stars in the graduate's school colors and glue them in various locations around the board. Cut strips of ribbon and tie them to the board, either in strands and/or bows. Add other embellishments as desired.
