My oldest son graduated this year and we received a stack of graduation invitations in the mail. Many of the cards had a wonderful graduation photo of the graduate. For years I never could figure out exactly what to do with the photo. After displaying them for a time, I would put them in a drawer and eventually I would throw away. Knowing how expensive the photos were, I have always felt guilty about doing this. I now have an easy way to transform the photo of the graduate into a keepsake....
Taking the photo and incorporating them into the gift card will make your graduation gift unique and something that the graduate will treasure.
Now, I no longer feel guilty about discarding the photos. I have had many graduates tell me how much they enjoyed the card that I made. This also makes a wonderful card to hold a gift of Money.
Even boys enjoy getting these cards.
What high school student wouldn't like to get a picture of themselves!
These are some cards and journals I made for some of the many graduation parties we attended this summer.
