Well, things are winding down for the most unconventional school year ever. If you have any graduates in your life, you know that they aren’t going to be able to celebrate commencement the way they were expecting. That’s why, today, I want to give a shoutout to two very special grads in my life, as well as share this 2020 graduation sign!
My parents always wanted a big family. My mom told me that she planned on having six kids. Well, when I was in the fourth grade, she got her wish—she was pregnant with baby number six! Except, when she went to her first appointment, she was surprised to find out that not only would she be welcoming a sixth baby into the family, but a seventh as well.
Since I was the oldest child at 10, I got to lend a hand in raising my twin sister and brother: feeding them, changing their diapers, getting them dressed, even potty training them. If you’ve ever had twins, you know that they are A LOT of work. My mom needed an extra hand wherever she could get it. And, most of the time at least, I was ready and willing to help. So, while I love all of my siblings, Makel and Kelton (the twins) hold a special place in my heart.
I did their senior pictures a few weeks ago, and these are a few of my favorites. I just can’t believe they are all grown up now, and graduating from high school!
These 2020 graduation signs serve as a fun prop for graduates to hold as they pose in their cap and gown! And they work great as a window display so that passersby can share in their accomplishment.
Note: If you are using the SVG file, I did the design in “reverse,” so that you can utilize the whole 8.5″x11″ sheet of paper for your sign. This shouldn’t cause you any issues, but just make sure to center the design as best you can on the sheet before you send it to cut.
I also made a couple yarn leis to go along with my signs. Finger knitting yarn leis for graduations is one of my favorite things to do! I did a tutorial on how to make yarn leis a long time ago; so, if you’re interested, feel free to check that out. These leis include three strands of yarn each (one red/blue, one white, and one fuzzy yarn for extra texture).
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun designs available on my blog!
Enjoy making my 2020 graduation sign for the awesome grad in your life!
