Last year when my oldest “baby” graduated from high school, it was an opportunity to craft away.  I even roped my friend, J., into helping me craft for my daughter’s graduation party.  One of our favorite crafts were these candy graduation cap favors. They’re easy to make and were a big hit with the graduate guests (and my graduating “baby”).

We made candy graduation caps as a center piece for my daughter’s graduation party.  But I also created these favor bags to hand out to the guests that were graduates themselves.


Candy Graduation Caps (easy directions)

Plastic snack size bag

White card stock paper

Contrasting color card stock paper (I used black to compliment the black graduation cap sticker)

Marker or pen 

Stickers for embellishment

black and white paper scraps, sheets of graduation cap labels and 3 pieces of decorated graduation cap candies

Slip 3 or 4 candy graduation caps into each plastic bag.  Trim the white card stock paper to fold over the top of the bag with about a 2 -3 inch tall front piece that’s as wide at the plastic bag.  Staple the paper into place with 2 staples in the center of the bag.  Add the contrasting card stock paper to cover the staples and then add your message on top of that.

These were an easy graduation party favor that were a big hit with the guests.  I can’t wait to make these candy graduation cap favors for my younger daughter’s graduation party next year.

    1. Thanks, Andrea. They’re easy enough to make (unless you eat all the candy and have to go out to get more – ask me how I know this).
