DIY American Flag Graduation Cap {With Design Space File Link}

It is graduation season y’all! I have a new co-teacher in my class and when she asked me to decorate her graduation cap- I jumped on that! I love doing this kind of stuff and I only wish I would have thought to go so bold with mine! She asked for an American Flag and so I put together a file and designed it in Cricut Design Space and I thought I would show you all how it came out and give you the link if you wanted to make it yourself! Check it out!

I believe graduation caps are a pretty standard size, but I would measure just in case to make sure the dimensions will work, it should be easy enough to change if you need to in the edit menu. If you have a Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space, you can click HERE and it should open right up for you! Then all you have to do is grab your permanent vinyl, cut and apply!

You can certainly use transfer vinyl for the stripes and stars if you want but I wanted to place by hand because this wasn’t a standard surface and it wasn’t too difficult to line up. The finishing touch was this adorable pearl trim I picked up at Joanns and I put a thin ribbon underneath it just to make everything look clean because there were some gaps in the pearl strip that might have ended up being confusing to the eye.

The bow is the last touch and it isn’t actually attached in this picture because I wanted to get final verification but there will be some time of bow situation on the back of the cap- it is so cute either way though! I am thrilled with the way it came out!

Did you ever decorate your graduation cap? Let me know in the comments below!
