It is really so simple to make your own stunning graduation party decor with these SVG files for Cricut.

Here’s What You Need:

  • Card stock
  • Long skewers
  • Glue (I used a mix of tape roller to glue paper together and hot glue to hold skewers in place)
  • Graduation hat cut files
  • Cutting machine (I used the Cricut Maker)
  • Flowers (these could be potted plants or flowers or cut flowers in a vase)

Chose the free graduation SVG files you need: (I have included PGN digital files in case you prefer those instead of SVG format for your convenience)
