Looking for an 8th Grade Graduation Gift Idea?

Can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday when they were headed off to kindergarten, looking all adorable in their new uniform. Now they are ready to swim in a bigger pond, expand their horizons, and celebrate all they have accomplished. What 8th grade graduation gift truly celebrates this milestone? A Memory Blanket!

As a Catholic school graduate myself, I understand the extended family you have built with your son or daughter through the grade school years. Between school, church, sports, clubs, fundraisers, and the small community, your parish becomes a second home.

Creating your Memory Blanket

You have saved t-shirts, sweatshirts, jerseys, pjs, golf shirts and more for years.  Now you are ready to create your special gift. What next?

If you live in the Philly area, you bring your clothes to our studio and we go through all your things together to choose the gift that best fits your needs.  If you are mailing your clothes, we chat on the phone before beginning your project.  Click here for our contact information.

Then, the creative process begins…

We custom cut your memory blanket squares to maximize the size of your blanket and ensure your logos are nicely displayed.  Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

Have a shirt that is smaller than the rest?  Want to add a patch or small piece of clothing?  We appliqué your smaller items on to your blanket.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We can combine two, three, or even four pieces of clothing to create one fun square.  Some examples of items to combine:  a home and away jersey, the pants and shirt from an outfit or pjs, two shirts from the same place in different colors, or four chest logos.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We appliqué names and /or numbers from the back of your jersey onto the front to fully represent your team experience.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We back your blanket in a cozy, soft, high quality, pre-washed flannel in your choice of a variety of colors.  Your blanket will showcase a three inch border of your backing color.  This border creates a beautiful “frame” for your work of art.Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

You can choose the direction of your blanket.  Your logos can either face one direction (great for the twin and queen sizes), or face in different directions (the preferred display for the large throw blanket size).

What a great quote on this blanket…”We make a living by what we do, we make a life by what we give.”

Thank you to all the graduates for sharing their life story with us.  Your t-shirts show you are well-rounded, hard-working, giving individuals.  Hats off to you!  Best of luck to you in all your future endeavors.

Just LOVE T-shirt Memory Blankets for Graduation

T-shirt Memory Blanket by Once Upon a Time Creation

We just love creating Memory Blankets for graduation.  By the time the project is complete, we feel like we know the graduate even though we haven’t met them as their shirts display their talents and gifts through the experiences they have had.  One of the best parts is getting to meet new families and share in such a monumental part of their life.  Although we can only show one pic for 2013 (they rest are surprise gifts), here are some from last year.
