“Cheers To You” Graduation Gifts

So this post could also be called “Fun at the Dollar Store” since I bought all of the items for this project at the Dollar store.  Some of my cute little neighbor girls just graduated from high school and I wanted to give them a little something to celebrate so I hit the dollar store for some inspiration and came up with the above!  I found those cute little tumblers that have flip flops on them and also the matching swizzle sticks for toppers in the luau section.  I filled the cups with candy such as gum, those little wax bottles full of syrup, Now and Later’s, ring pops, little bags of M&M’s and Reeses Pieces, and mini Kit Kats.  Then in the craft section, I found some Styrofoam rounds which are wider on one side than the other and which fit perfectly in the top of the cups.  I covered the Styrofoam on one cup with Jolly Rancher’s and on another cup with Baskin Robbins hard candies and then on the other two cups with Bazooka bubble gum using straight pins to attach them to the round.  Next I pinned mini Air Heads to the top of the round to cover it and then stuck the floral swizzle sticks in the top between the Air Heads.  Cute, quick, easy and not expensive!  Congrats to Brianne, Niki, Chantal and Sidney on graduating, I’m so proud of you!
