Graduation Frames:
seashell hand crafted pictures frames makes a great graduation giftAs the new graduate is likely to receive many photos of family and friends during the celebration an ideal graduation craft is a decorated picture frame. You can buy a simple wood frame very cheaply at Wal-Mart or a crafts supply outlet and then decorate it with objects that relate to the graduate's favorite occupations or hobbies. For instance, if the graduate like to go to the beach, you can adhere sand to the frame using a coating of glue and then also glue such beach-faring items as seashells  to the perimeters of the frame.

Graduation Scrapbook:
Another good idea for a graduation craft involves "scrap booking." This is a great gift idea for relatives or friends on a budget who still want to present the graduate with some kind of heartfelt and thoughtful present. Put together a notebook of hints on surviving in the adult world. Collect articles from magazines about such subjects as budgeting, doing laundry, homesickness and human relations (especially dealing with bad roommates!) from books and magazines and collect them in a book for the graduate. You can decorate the cover of the binder or book with ribbons, photographs, drawings and messages from well wishers.
