When I think of the month of June, I think of graduations. I graduated from high school in June 20 (oh my!!) years ago. And lots of stores used to run promotions advertising gifts for “Dads and Grads” during June. Anymore though, it seems like most graduations happen in May instead. But since for me, when I think of June graduation season still comes to mind, June’s card of the month is a graduation card. If you’re already done with graduation parties for 2015, you can always just get a jump start on next year’s graduation cards.
Start by getting some 8 1/2 inch by 5 1/2 inch card stock. Personally, I like red for graduations because it reminds me of the ribbons on diplomas, but silver or gray card stock would be nice too. Or you could even use card stock to match school colors. Fold the card stock in half. Then cut a smaller white rectangle for the front of the card. Get some sparkly ribbon that matches the card stock and wrap it around the white rectangle and tape it to the back to hold it in place. Attach the rectangle to the front of the card using pop up dots. Put a black mortarboard sticker on the white rectangle above the ribbon. Ta da! A cute graduation card, whether you end up using it right away in June for the Class of 2015 or save it for next May to celebrate the Class of 2016!
