The first set are traditional graduation cards made tall to fit the checks inside and accented with each graduate's school colors:
I added a strip of cardstock to hold the checks on the inside:
The next set of graduation cards aren't your traditional cards. They are candy wrappers! I purchased my Godson's favorite candy (Kit Kat), and his best friend's favorite candy (Swedish Fish), and created these especially for them:
The opening of the wrapper has the check on one flap and then the conGRADulations message on the other piece. I used a small amount of repositionable adhesive so that the wrappers could be reopened.
The owls from all of the graduation cards/wrappers were cut using the Straight From the Nest Cricut cartridge. The graduation caps were from Everyday Paper Dolls, and the patterned paper was in my stash from many years ago.
I was inspired to make the candy wrapper-style grad cards after seeing Gigi the Cricut Bug's graduation pillow boxes. I really liked that idea, but thought wrappers would better serve my candy than a pillow box. Gigi's were absolutely adorable, though!
Well, I'd say that's it for graduation, but I do have one more card to make that snuck up on me. Since I'm SO DONE with the owls, I had to go with a different theme for this last addition. I will post it soon.
Have a good weekend, fellow crafters!
