Snack and Gatoraid Craft

My daughter wanted to make her dad something for his birthday that he would enjoy.  She wanted to keep it simple because she said he's not worried about how it looks, he just wants the snacks...lol
I thought it was a good idea and  I guess men don't care, like my daughter said, but I tried to think of ways to pretty it up but not too much.
I would cover the cardboard circles with scrap paper with tool designs since he is a carpenter.   Then circle with  pieces of burlap ribbon on the top and bottom.  Then I would tuck small tools in the burlap. Do you have ideas for this craft?  Let me know how you would change this gift or would you change it at all?  We would love to hear your ideas.

Graduation Gift Ideas

I have a lot of friends graduating this year from nursing school, high school, and college. I have been looking for graduation gift ideas and parties.  Here are some really cute graduation gifts I found.
This is one graduation gift I have never seen before. Absolutely clever idea and one sure to please, no matter the age.
 
 I have always thought these bottles that look like they came with the gifts inside are just the cutest. A slit in the side is used to get the gifts inside.  You can use the original label or make your own custom label.
I really like this box decorated like a graduation cap.  It is perfect for graduation cards and money.There are probably a lot more ideas  that can be done with this box
Sometimes the most simple things are so cute.  I would use 2 ribbons with the school colors and also wrap them in a clear wrap.  They would be great to give as favors if they are wrapped.

Here are a few nursing graduation party invitations:

 Fold the ends like you would a gift.
 Wrap the candy wrapper around the foil
wrapped bar, making sure the nutrition facts are on the back.
 Using a glue stick, run a line at the top of the wrapper. Then join the sides together.
