the one with a gift card booklet

First of all, and very important . . . if your name is Emma, you know me personally, and you are graduating from high school this year STOP READING! No seriously, stop reading. I’ll tell you all about it later.

And now . . . I can’t believe that I have another nephew graduating from high school. If they could all just stop aging that’d be fine by me. But another will graduate in just a few days along with his darling girlfriend. He’s a boy so he just gets a boring check or maybe a gift card I haven’t decided yet. But his girlfriend gets something a little more special. So I made her a gift card booklet! Here’s the how to . . .



2 pieces of scrapbook/construction/card stock paper



embellishments for front

to do::

Fold first piece of paper in half and glue all sides together

take half sheet and fold in thirds – make sure all edges are crisply folded

cut second sheet into 3 or 4 (3″ x8″) sheets

fold the bottom 3 inches of each sheet up  to make a pocket. glue it on the inside ‘sides’ of the card.



glue the corners of the pocket together – so that’ll it hold the gift card – and repeat until finished. be sure to only glue pockets to the inside ‘sides so the outside resembles a card.

Once all your pockets are glued on and ready for their gift cards, decorate the front with any embellishments you want and add the gift cards to their pockets!


All done! What’s your go to graduation gift?
