Gifts for the Graduate

Tip your hat to your favorite graduate with a little gift (or a little cash) in a mini mortarboard box. To make, start with a small, round balsa-wood box, then cut a 4 1/2-inch square piece of card stock in a matching color. Punch a hole in the middle of the card stock with an awl, pull a tassel through, and tape it down. Secure the paper to the box top with double-sided tape.
