Graduation Idea: Scripture Tags...

 I had fun this morning getting a graduation gift ready for a sweet friend of mine.  I have made these tags before with scriptures on them just for myself but thought they would make a great gift for her or any graduate. Girls especially.
 I thought about printing the scriptures out but I think some of the sweetness about it is that they are handwritten.  Plus, I enjoyed writing the scriptures out. Kind of a labor of love.
 You can hang them anywhere that there is a knob or handle in the house. I guess you even hang them from your rear view mirror in your car. My sister in law hangs them from the little switch on her reading lamp. Doorknobs would work too.
All you need are regular shipping tags, card stock colored paper and a marker. I picked up the little tin cup and note pad at Target for a dollar each. I also stuck a Target gift card in with the tags.
 Sure hope she likes them.

What are some of your graduation gift ideas?

By the way (love this)...excerpt from "Jesus Calling"-
Bring your performance anxiety to Me, and receive in its place My unfailing love.  Try to stay conscious of My loving Presence with you in all that you do, and I will direct your steps.

Jeremiah 31:3
 Long ago the Lord said to Israel:
“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
 
Blessings on your day! Amy

Such a sweet idea! I can imagine them hanging around the dorm room. Handwritten ones are more personal! My go-to graduation gift the last couple of years are the scented drawer liners and a gift card. Hopefully they make the dorm room drawers seem a little cleaner and smell nice! Boys get whatever useful thing I can find on sale - LOL.
