Graduations are just around the corner, and what better way to surprise the graduate in your life than with a card and gift box all in one?
This file was created using the matchbox file as a base. I added a section to the side which becomes the easel card sitting on top. I enlarged the file to cover my 12×12 mat so the card was a decent size. It also means that the box is large enough to hold a gift card or a jewelry box for example.
There are some terrific graduation files in the Craft Room, so the hardest part is choosing which ones to use! I couldn’t go past the owl though, and jazzed him up by using the print and cut feature, but cutting a few elements out to put on top of the printed owl. I also added dimensional magic to his eyes and to his glasses.
I used a couple more print and cut files for the sides and the top of the card in coordinating colours to fit in with the Kaisercraft Shine Bright papers.
This was a fun project to do and can be used for any occasion. I hope you find inspiration in this project to create your own special card for a special graduate. I’ve included the modified files for this matchbox card below.
