The Revered Mortarboard

Today is the last of my graduation festivities of the season. I made this card box for the beautiful Rachel. Did you know that the graduation cap is actually called a mortarboard?  It is. Wondering why, I looked it up.

It was originally named mortarboard because of its resemblance to the tool that bricklayers and plasterers use to hold the mortar.  Weirdly enough, this tool is not called a mortarboard. It is called a hawk.  That one, I cannot explain.

Mortarboard. Use the word in a sentence today and impress your friends.

And take your Vitamin C!
