Simple Graduation Party Favors

I love hosting parties, and sending my guests off with a favor that means something special to the guest of honor. These simple graduation party favors can hold anything you like – put candy, a note, a thumb drive of photos, a keyring… or any small gift or token into the boxes to give to the guests at your graduation party. They’ll love leaving with a token commemorating the occasion!

This project is part of a whole week of End-of-School-Year posts that use the Cricut Machine. My friends Angie from the Country Chic Cottage, Jessica from Mad in Crafts, and Jen from 100 Directions and I are all sharing fun end-of-school-year posts this week, and we’ve invited some of our craftiest friends to join in! Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this page for more fun ideas!
