Our PTA did something genius. They had each teacher fill out a survey about some of their favorite things (restaurants, hobbies, etc). They are kept in a large binder in the office for parents to check out. Today after school, I'm going to have my kids write a thank-you note to their teachers. I'm including a Sonic gift card, because nothing tastes like summer to me more than Sonic. (and honestly, b/c they sell them at the check-out of the grocery store)
I bought invitation envelopes (4 3/4 x 6 1/2 inch). I took a 12 inch piece of card stock and cut in so it was 6 inches wide. Then I folded it at 4 1/2 inches and 9 inches. This gave me a 3 inch flap.
Inside I attached a strip of paper to make a little pocket for the gift card.
I glued some fun "summer" paper on the front. Then I punched a hole in the center of the flap.
I cut a slit in the bottom flap and thread a piece of ribbon through.
I tied it shut. TADAA!
