Graduation gift I “just whipped up!”

I needed a graduation gift for the daughter of a friend of mine – she and her sister were the ring bearer and flower girl at my wedding! Look how cute they looked almost 14 years ago.

It’s hard to imagine it has been that long since our wedding. Sigh.

Anyhow, this high school graduate is moving into an upstairs apartment with a friend. I decided to give her a gift certificate to a local store so she can get something that matches her decorative taste.

The only problem was…I didn’t want to just put it inside a card envelope. So, I made this cool little wallet! (At least I hope its cool, LOL!)

I used some non-quilted remnants left from one of my doll carrier projects. On the outside this wallet has a velcro closure with a pretty flower button to match.

The inside has three card pockets on one side, a zip pouch on the other side, and some slide-in pockets between them.

I put my gift card in one of the card pockets. The card that shows how much the card is worth in the opposite slide-in pocket, wrapped it in tissue, and placed it in a gift bag with the card. I hope she likes it!
