Homemade Graduation Announcements For 2009!


The first thing you want to do is figure out what kind of card you would like to make.

Do you want a "quarter fold card" or a "half fold card"?


If you are doing a quarter fold card, you will want to use regular 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock paper that you can get at any local craft store ( I live near a Michael's and an A.C. Moore's, but there is also Hobby Lobby, Joann's, heck you can even find scrapbooking papers at Wal-mart and Target).


If you are planning on doing a half fold card you can buy your cardstock pre-scored (which means its already got the fold line in it all you have to do is just fold it) for about $6.00 at A.C.Moore.com, which includes 20 sheets per "Card Stack" and you can even get envelopes to go with the half fold card stacks for around the same price as the Card Stack.Next, you want to decided if you want to print them or hand write the information on the cards individually.


If you are like me, you want them to look perfect so you chose to print them. In order to print them you need to open something such as a word program and see if it has some sort of cards on there. If they have a graduation card you can always modify it with "clipart" that you have found or like.


If you chose to write it out (if you are really artsy and have great handwriting) then you should try out caligraphy on the cards or the envelopes. It gives them a really nice look.If you do a quarter fold card, you can actually place a wallet size senior portrait on the inside but cutting two small slits on the right inside of the card to give everyone a portrait of the person who is graduating.


If you want to give it a personal touch you can customize the announcements with your school colors (either with the font, or the graphics).

You can write on the right inside of the card if you don't wish to place a photo inside the card, you can place things such as lyrics, quotes, etc.

There are so many things you can do, to make custom cards that no one else will have.You can actually do this on a limited budget, just have fun with it.


So just make them your own! People will love them and you will be proud that you took your creativity to the next level and proud that you are graduating.See more info of multiple choice test cheating strategies
