Link Love: Graduation Crafts

It’s that time of year – graduation season! The school year is winding down which means that young people are getting ready to move on to the next phase of their lives. This can be a scary time – the uncertainty of the job market and the prospect of starting over can cause anxiety and dread. Don’t let this happen to someone you love! Instead, create comforting and encouraging graduation gifts that can be saved for a lifetime.

There are so many ways to show you care when looking for meaningful graduation gifts. You don’t have to go all out or spend a fortune, either. Something as small as a handmade card can make a huge impression on a recent grad – just be sure to include a message that’s personal and thoughtful.

It’s important to create a one-of-a-kind graduation gift that can be saved as a keepsake. If you want to keep it simple (or give the recent grad a little cash), create a Celebrate the Graduate Card. Simple die cuts and patterned paper make this a quick and easy card craft for beginners. This time of year often inspires nostalgia, so consider creating a Graduation Frame or Tie-Dye Graduate Frame to give as a gift. Your present is sure to be displayed for a long time alongside other meaningful keepsakes.

Graduation season means new beginnings and fresh starts. Celebrate this exciting accomplishment with some DIY gifts – it’s a great way to say “I’m so proud of you.”
