Materials you'll need:

Step 1

Remove the tassel and flatten the cap down

Step 2

Measure the width and height of the cap. Mine was a little larger than nine inches.

Step Three

Cut a piece of Kassa Blackboard Vinyl to the size of your cap. I cut mine 9 inches by 9 inches.

Step Four

Check that the Vinyl fits the top of your cap. Press down on the stud in the centre of the cap and leave a slight imprint on your Vinyl.

Step Five

Noting where the imprint of the centre stud was, cut two lines to form a cross, then carefully, cut a circle out. I cut my circle approximately an inch in diameter.

Step Six

Peel off the backing of the Vinyl and carefully place the hole over the centre stud, and smooth the Vinyl out flat.

Step Seven

As the stud of my cap wasn’t completely centred to my vinyl, I used a pair of scissors to trim the excess vinyl off. Do not be afraid to trim the vinyl to size, but make sure you don’t accidentally cut the cap or the the tassel.

Step Eight

Select your favourite inspirational quote and start lettering using your Kassa Liquid Chalk Markers. I chose one from Eleanor Roosevelt and used the silver and rose gold, from the limited edition Kassa Metallic Pack.

Step Nine

Once your chalk has dried (it shouldn’t take more than a minute), re-tie the tassel back into place.

Voila, your graduation cap is complete and you can now wear it with pride. Don’t forget to take photos!

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. – Eleanor Roosevelt.
