More graduations leis....

More high school graduations this week for my daughters friends. This time for Noelle and Erica. Their school colors are royal blue and orange. I folded crisp dollar bills and made felt flowers in their school colors. Hand delivered this morning for their noon ceremony. 

Here are Noelle and Erica's $ leis for their graduations.

I used 1, 2 and 5 dollar bills tied with ribbon.

Graduation lei's

My daughter graduates in two weeks and many of her friends are too. They go to many different high schools. The first friend Celie graduated yesterday in Little Rock, Arkansas. The girls have been friends  since they were in kindergarten together. I wanted to send her something special since so I made her a money lei with handmade flowers. I cut spirals in the felt and coiled the felt to make the flowers using a glue gun to adhere it. I collected new dollar bills each time I went into the bank. I fan folded them while I watch the Giants baseball game until I had enough to circle the wreath.

Here is the finished lei for Celie. Congratulations Celie!
