I was opening the mail the other day and got a package that had one of these:
I was so excited that it did just what I wanted it to do! I used my Silhouette Cameo to create this card but you could use any other die cutting machine, or even stickers to make this card. I used paper from the Fabulous Collection Kit by Simple Stories to make this card.
Xyron sticker maker! With a Xyron, you just feed the letters in one one side and pull them out the other side and have instant stickers! That would have been much easier...
Once I had all my letters stuck down, I sketched out "Pull" for the pull tab circle using Silhouette Sketch Pens to help identify what to do with the card:
Epiphany Crafts bubble cap on top of the pull circle to give it some detail that draws attention to it.
Next I used my Silhouette Sketch Pens again to sketch out a sentiment that will only be seen once the grad opens the card by pulling the pull tab:
Next you just need to add tape to the front of the card and place down your money, photo or gift like so:
graduation confetti too (click the link for a tutorial on how to make your own!)
Once you add tape to the front of your card (it's easiest to do the front so you can line up the tape with the zipper opening)- you can attach the front and the back of the card together and sandwich your gift in the middle. When the grad goes to open the card, they will be able to see your secret message and get their gift! How fun!
