Step 1. You’ll take your 12×12 black cardstock and cut 2 strips at 1″ width and 1 strip at 1/2″ width. Take the 1/2″ strip and cut it in half creating two 6″ long pieces. You’ll also use your 1″ circle punch to cut a circle out of your coordinating pattern paper for the center of your pinwheel.
Step 2. Now you’ll take your two long strips and accordion fold them to create your pinwheel.
Step 3. You’ll take each folded paper and glue the ends together with hot glue until you have a complete circle.
Step 4. Press it flat and add hot glue in the center to secure. Now you’ll take your two 6″ strips and cut a “V” shape on one end to create your hanging ribbon. Hot glue them to the back.
Step 5. Fill your gift bag with whatever you like. We love giving different gift cards they can use when they go to college since money gets tight! Then add in tissue paper.
Step 6. Now it’s time to download, print, and cut out your free DIY graduation Gift Tag Printables to attach to your gift bags.
This DIY graduation gift box is also a fun, crafty idea! Jazz up your gifting presentation and get crafty!
