How convenient for me that I just made a graduation card yesterday and the CASology cue card today is graduation!
ETA: What a nice surprise to receive an Honorable mention for my card at CASology!
This idea has been around for a while in various forms, bills rolled up as candles for a birthday age, etc. I did see a graduation card recently with the bills rolled up to make the year 2015 but I don't remember who's it was or where I saw it sorry. It is kind of unique because you can only do this for certain years.
I made this for my son's best friend, Colman, who graduates from grade 12 this year. He is a fantastic kid and my son is lucky enough to be going along with him on his graduation trip to San Fransisco at the beginning of July. I had a bit of U.S. money (we are in Canada) hanging around (unfortunately no $10 so the bills could be all level and I never thought to go to the bank) so he gets 2 twenties, a single and a five... which is about $300 Canadian with the current exchange rate! Just kidding, it's bad but not that bad.
I just rolled the bills up and paper clipped them to stay, then I cut slits in the card to slide the paperclips into. I probably just could have just used glue dots to keep them rolled together and attach them to the card - but I didn't. I did stamp 2015 underneath where the bills are so when he removes them, the year will still be on the card.
I boxed the graduate sentiment around the bills.
Thanks so Much for Looking!
