Graduation Cap Pattern

Customer Noel Searles carved this graduation watermelon using the Graduation Pattern that we offer in our online shop. He made the decorative cuts around the pattern using our Corrugated U-cutters.

Nita,
I did go through your “Lettering” course because as I told you I wanted to do a graduation presentation for my nephew. The course was very helpful and I would highly recommend it. I used your graduation template and then used a word editing program in order to add the: AHS CLASS OF 2017 on the bottom of the image. I used your Fabric Transfer which was “worth its weight in gold” It was the hit of his party and he even took it to another graduation party the next day.

Thanks so much for the instruction and the tools which I purchased and used.

Best regards,
Noel Searles

Here is where you can get our Carving Letters and Words Course and our Pattern Transfer Fabric that Neal mentions above. The Pattern Transfer Fabric is a great time saver!
