Graduation Money Holder

ETA - If you'd like a copy of the template, click here. It should print to a standard 8.5x11. Otherwise, the measurements are also included.

This card is the second one my mother-in-law chose. It was pretty simple to do, and I may try a few more as they work great for tucking in every grad's favorite gift - cash!
