  • Today I am going to use the Topped Off Template to show you some other ideas for big occasions that pop up through the years that we may get stumped on!

    I’ve been sitting on the Topped Off Template for MONTHS!!! It is always hard to wait.

    As previously stated Topped Off Template  is a very versatile. You get 4 toppers, with the possibility of adding some of your own “tops” to the lid. It actually was created for two tough occasions I often struggle with when giving gifts: Graduation, and Weddings/Showers.

    We all love flowers, so what could be prettier than this on every table at a wedding or at your next event?

    This is the epitome of elegance at its finest.

    For ONE $5 template purchase (and some cardstock) you can make an unlimited amount of favors! Any bride on a budget would FLIP over this because its inexpensive, but doesn’t LOOK cheap!

    Simply change the flower color to suit the Bride’s color scheme. You’d pay a several dollars a piece if you purchased these from a company. Now you can make your own time and time again.

    The flower included in this template was designed intentionally to be similar to a daffodil, the flower of the American Cancer Society, as that is a cause dear to my heart and that I support year round. It is bright, cheery and sure to brighten someones day. It could also look like many other flowers by changing the color.

    You can use the flower that comes with this, or even change the flower to the Brides favorite flower. We offer many amazing Pretty Pieces Cut Files that would work beautifully with this template!

    This would also make some fabulous table decor at any dinner, or event. You can make them for favors at your next holiday party, use them for a garden themed party, or even at any birthday.

    Fill this with seeds, flavored tea’s, scented soaps, lotions, tea lights, mini pastries or chocolates! You can add whatever you want!

    For the Grad!

    Each year as the kids progress from one grade to the next or more recently a friend of mine had her daughter graduate from high school, I wanted something fun, unexpected, and unique to present a gift in. After seeing a grad cap card,  I had the idea to add the “grad” cap to become part of my “toppers” in the Top It Off template.

     I needed something to package my “cash” in, and this was perfect. I rolled it up, in a piece of white paper, and tied it like a diploma. Didn’t photograph that part-sorry! I’m sure you get the idea though.

    I love making your won gifts, and having this template, you can now have a Grad cap in any school color!

    I stamped the Congratulations from the Sentimental Occasions © set. I made the tassel from some embroidery floss! They sell small ones at most dollar stores around graduation time, but if you can’t find the color you want, make your own. The center of the cap I made using an iTopp brad.

    Another post with some easy peasy projects.

    I hope you get the versatility of this template, and are already thinking of your own occasions to use it for.

    Tune in tomorrow because the team and I will share our Holiday Year in Review! You won’t want to miss it.

    Thanks for stopping by.
