You only need a printer to make some free printable graduation cards. Stick in money or a check and you will be giving a Grad what they really need!

Graduation parties are coming up soon!  Do you need a quick and easy grad gift?

And these printable graduation cards are super easy and quick to put together.  Under 5 minutes, I promise! 

Plus I have a purple and blue option for you to choose from.  Or print out both!

Fold along all of the black lines.  Fold the “Congrats Grad” section down.printable graduation cards

Fold the “You Did It” section up so it covers the middle section and goes under the top.printable graduation cards

Fold the flaps on both sides under.  I found it easiest to flip the card over and fold them in.printable graduation cards

Now apply glue to the top of the flaps.

Now fold over the bottom half onto the center section.  Press down firmly on the edges so the flaps glue down.

    Great template! Easy to use with your great directions. Only difficulty was locating the link for the PDF. Instead kept clicking the ‘ad’ for the PDF convertor. Happy it worked out. Thanks again!

  2. Thank you! Sorry, I don’t have control over which ads show up and I agree, I can’t stand with those PDF converter ads pop up right near a download! I wish there was some way I could change that.

    Such great cards! I wasn’t able to locate the Cricut file. When I went to CDS it just reloaded Design space. I looked at the grad cards but couldn’t find the ones you did. Help?

  5. Thanks for letting me know! I think CDS changes the layout and that changes the links. I changed the link in the post which worked for me, so hopefully it does for you too! is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
