When I graduated, I remember getting this fun graduation gift cap card. Unfortunately, I can’t track it down but knowing that graduation season is quickly upon us, I thought it would be fun to try to create something like it from memory.

Graduation Cap Gift Card Holder

This is a pretty simple graduation gift idea. You’ll need to print it double sided on cardstock, cut the edges, do a few folds and add a little glue. I’ve included fold marks on the .pdf as a reference and I’ve got some pictures below to help you with the process.

DIY Graduation Cap Card

Graduation Gift Card Holder

If you wish to include the money pocket, you simply fold over the extra paper notch.  That is the one with the stripes on the back.  Run a glue stick on the two outer edges and press down. It will leave the middle area open and you’ll have a nice little pocket inside.

Another fun idea is to write out the numbers of the graduation year with the bills.  Of course this won’t work every year, but you are set for 2020, 2021, and 2022.  And if you don’t want to give cash or a gift card, you can also tuck a check or even just a note inside.  If you want to use this as a regular card to attach to a gift instead of a graduation gift card holder, simply trim off the extra paper. There is plenty of room for a little note or words of wisdom. You have a pick of tassel colors that you can glue on the top and you are done!
