Pop Up Photo Graduation Cap Cards

POP UP PHOTO GRADUATION CARDS

As graduation season rolls around, I was thinking of unique gift ideas for the twelve (yes, twelve!) graduation parties on our calendar this month. I wanted to create something special and memorable for each graduate while keeping the process simple and enjoyable. That’s when I came up with the idea of crafting personalized graduation cap pop-up cards. Not only are they fun to make, but they also allow for customization with each school’s colors and a personal touch with a photo of the graduate inside.

The inspiration behind these cards stemmed from the desire to celebrate each graduate in a meaningful way. By incorporating their school colors, these cards become a representation of their journey and achievements. Whether it’s black and orange for our local school or customized hues for other institutions, the colors add a personalized touch to each card.

Pop-Up Surprise:
One of the highlights of these cards is the pop-up feature inside. With a carefully crafted design, the graduation cap springs to life when the card is opened, revealing a special moment captured in a photo of the graduate. It’s a delightful surprise that adds an extra layer of sentiment to the card.

Practicality Meets Thoughtfulness:
In addition to the visual appeal, these cards also offer practicality. Inside each card, there’s a pocket designed to hold cash or a gift card, providing the graduate with a thoughtful gift alongside heartfelt congratulations. It’s a combination of practicality and sentimentality that makes these cards truly special.

Supplies:
To create these charming graduation cap pop-up cards, I used the Alphabet A La Mode Die set for the year and colored card stock to match the school colors. I got the  tassels, envelopes, and brads on Amazon and have links below. They come in different colors to match.

Instructions:
I’ve prepared a comprehensive guide with step-by-step instructions, measurements, and a complete supply list. You can download the free PDF below in the “Instructions” section, making it easy to follow along and create your own personalized cards.

Video Tutorial:
I’ve also put together a short video tutorial. This walkthrough will guide you through the process of creating these cards, from start to finish. Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a novice, the video tutorial ensures that you can embark on this creative journey with confidence.

As graduation season sweeps in, there’s no better way to celebrate the achievements of our loved ones than with a handmade touch. These graduation cap pop-up cards offer a perfect blend of creativity, customization, and thoughtfulness, making them an ideal gift for any graduate. So, gather your supplies, unleash your creativity, and let’s craft something truly special for the graduates in our lives.

Happy crafting!
