Some may believe tassels become useless after graduation once the year has passed. However, the tassel year charm (also known as a signet) can easily be removed and reapplied to the tassels. Graduation coordinators, don’t allow left over tassels to collect dust! Recycle them and reorder year charms directly from GraduationSource.
Examine your tassel and signet to make sure the color and year are correct. Since you are reading this tutorial, it probably isn’t your desired year
Remove from plastic packaging and pry open the hook on your tassel clasp using your fingers or tool and remove current year charm.
Here is an easy trick: Lift year charm and gently twist to the right while firmly holding the clasp. This will open the small loop and you can easily remove the year charm.
If you would like to keep the tassel in its protective sleeve, secure loop around a finger and carefully pull tassel from the bottom opening until year charm is exposed. Continue steps 3 and 4 if you are adding a new charm onto the tassel. Otherwise, press hook closed and slide protective sleeve back down the length of the tassel.
Slide the signet onto the hook making sure your year is facing outward.
Press the hook closed. If you are having trouble closing the clasp, use a hard surface (such as the side of a table) to push it shut.
