Pop-up Graduation Card

Making your own pop-up cards is a great way to show someone how special they are to you! I whipped up this simple graduation Pop-up card using a file in Cricut Design Space. I made a few adjustments, and am sharing it here with you so that you can create your own custom graduation pop-up card!

This project is part of a week-long series of crafts celebrating the end of the school year. My friends Jessica from Mad in Crafts, Jen from 100 Directions and Angie from The Country Chic Cottage are joining in each day with more ideas, as are some of our craftiest friends around the internet.

On the inside of the card, line up the Mortarboard. It should be folded in half, with the fold towards the middle. The corner of the fold closest to the tab should line up with the center fold on the card.
