Created this Graduation Gift Card Holder with inspiration from Frenchie. You can click here to see Frenchie's video on how to make.
I used Cricut cartridge Locker Talk to make Grad Diploma on the right side. Paper pieced the Owl. Braided some twine. Added 2 metal brads to inside to close the holder to fit the gift card inside.
This is for my daughter that graduated from Kansas City Art Institute. KCAI colors are green & purple. She likes Owls. We gave her an Amazon gift card. She is happy to be able to use it on something other than college books or supplies.
