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!
The binder idea sounds so great! I guess you never think about the fact that everyone other person before you has probably already given the teacher a mug or lotion set. Lol. The card you made is so cute. I love scrapbooking and card making when I have time so this caught my eye. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my restroom tile post. I wasn't sure what to expect but you're right about it being easier. I was pleasantly surprised with the end result.
I love it. I do a handmade card and gift card a lot, but I love this cute style. I'll be copying. What do you do for Middle School? This is my first time....ReplyDelete
(PS. Still can't post with my Google account, boo)
It's not letting me post comment either-it was a few days.ReplyDelete
With guilt, I have to admit that so far nothing. I think I might do a little card w/ some candy or something-Tara
Very cool! I work in a middle school - our students do nothing =o( It makes me super aware of the importance for doing things for my kids teachers. This is a great idea!ReplyDelete

Great ideas. I need to make them now, I always forget and then have to scramble something together the night before the last day of school.ReplyDelete
