You will need:
Paper Selection

I did this Graduation Wiper card in grey and black to make it unisex.  It would be cute in school colors too.    Patterns would work well with any part of this card.  The base card needs to be 65 lb weight or heavier but the embellishments can be any weight.

Cutting the card

The “graduate” and the people are very thin so be careful when removing them from the mat.

Assembling the Graduation Wiper Card

First re-crease all the folds. The two base cards fit together with the smaller sections on opposite ends.  First, glue the end smaller section to the back of the other base on the large end forming a “box” with a tab at each end.

Then attach the wiper to the inside small section on the left by looking at the picture below.

Next, attach the embellishments on the overlay pieces.  And then attach the overlay pieces to the card base.  Look at the picture if you need help.  Finally attach the cap and the diploma to the wiper.  Make sure that they don’t hang over the left side or they will stick out the top of the card.

Tuck the wiper in and press the card closed.  When opened the wiper will pop up.

And your Graduation Wiper Card is done!
