It is time to celebrate high school and college grads. I helped my mom make these cute open house favors this afternoon. They are super easy but a bit time consuming! You can personalize the colors to match your grads school colors!

What you’ll need:

  • Card stock (Use your grad’s school colors)
  • Ribbon (Use your grad’s school colors)
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Reese’s Miniature Candies
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ruler

Measure out 1.75 inch squares on the card stock and cut out the squares. These are the tops of the graduation hats!

Get your Reese’s candy ready:

Measure the ribbon pieces. Ours were approximately 1.5 inches long:

Now use the remaining card stock to punch holes for the button tops.

Heat up your hot glue gun. Place a drop of glue on the small side of the Reese’s candy and gently press the card stock square into place. Then place a small dab of glue in the center of the card stock, quickly set the ribbon and the hole punch on the glue spot. Then repeat.
