Graduation: A Bottle Full of Cash

What does a new grad want more than cold, hard cash? Add a little fun by placing the cash inside a personalized wine bottle the graduate will have to smash to get to. To make, roll up bills in different denominations that total the amount of money you want to gift, and place in a clean, dry wine bottle. Super glue the cork back to the top. Create a label with the words "Smash for Cash" on your computer, print on sticker paper and apply on the bottle. Let the grad have fun smashing the bottle (in a safe way) to get out their gift.

Moving Away: Embroidered Map

It's bitter sweet when friends and family move away. Give them something memorable and meaningful. To make this embroidered map, print out a map on heavy cardstock that includes where they live now or their hometown and where they are moving. Use a simple straight stitch to embroider the path they are taking to their new, exciting home. A modern matte and bold frame complete the perfect piece of art for their new house.

New Job: Pay Day Kit

The first day at a new job can be stressful. Give a close friend a kit of their favorite snacks, office supplies and must-have desk accessories to make their new space feel like home. Personalize a glass jar by spelling out "here comes pay day" with letter stickers and framing it with painter's tape. Apply etching cream onto the glass inside the tape border and on top of the letters. After washing off the etching cream, peel off the stickers and the tape to reveal the etch.
