By:

If your friend or family member is graduating, then you might be interested in making this kids school craft.  Use this ring complete with mortarboard as a napkin ring at a graduation party or maybe if you're the person graduating, consider it the last of your end of school year crafts.  Regardless, you will draw out some smiles with this fun project.

Materials:
