I have been really enjoying warmer and sunnier days as we ease into spring and move towards summer. There are so many things to look forward to with the approach of summer, not the least of which is graduation!
If you have loved ones graduation this year – from high school, kindergarten, college, or whatever – then my SVG designer friends and I have a whole collection of new graduation themed SVGs to share with you today!
For my contribution to the collection, I created a papercut card design because I just love papercut designs and I especially love how easy they are to make with my Silhouette or Cricut!
Want to learn how to make your own papercut graduation cards with this freebie?
DIY Papercut Graduation Card
This project comes together super quickly with an electronic craft cutter like a Cricut or a Silhouette. The free cut file, which you can download from the link at the end of this post, contains both a folded version (that’s what you see in the photos) and a flat version of the card.
I put together a little video showing you how to make your own cute glasses, which you can watch below, or keep scrolling for written instructions. (If you don’t see a video below, it may be because of an ad blocker.)
- Colored Cardstock
- Glitter or Metallic Cardstock
- Spray Adhesive or Permanent Adhesive
- A7 Envelope
- My Free Graduation Card SVG
- Cricut, Silhouette, or Brother Scan N Cut
- Needlepoint Tweezers
- Cut out the card design from a piece of colored cardstock using your electronic craft cutter.
- Carefully remove the card from your cutting mat. I like to flip the mat over and bend the mat away.
- Use tweezers to remove any small pieces of paper remaining.
- Fold the card along the perforated line.
- Cut a piece of glitter or metallic cardstock to 4.5" x 6.5".
- Apply spray adhesive (or other permanent adhesive) to the back of the cut design on the front of the card. Be sure to cover your work surface if using spray adhesive. This can be messy!
- Position the piece of metallic or glitter cardstock you cut on the back of the cut front design. Hold in place as the adhesive cures.
