When I was a teacher, one of my favorite gifts to receive by far were gift cards – Starbucks being the most coveted of them all. Inspiration for this project came from eighteen25.
These cards are a fairly simple gift to assemble. They print in a 5×7 size and you can print them at home or from the photo finishing company of your choosing. I printed my cards at home on card stock.
I bought Starbucks gift cards for each of Lily’s teachers (though you could certainly substitute any coffee shop’s gift card).
Click on any of 4 templates below to get a full sized version of the card. To save the full sized version on your computer, just right click over the large image and choose “save as.”
To complete these cards, you’ll need one of those “oh-my-God-this-drink-is-burning-my-flesh-protector-thingers.” I think the official term for them is a “sleeve.” I measured and cut the sleeve, then I affixed the cut piece to my card, Starbucks logo down, with double-sided tape. I inserted the gift card (if you think your gift card will fall out, you can always secure it with a piece of tape.
To finish off my cards, I wrapped a long strand of twine around each one a few times, tying the ends in a small bow. Lily signed each card before they were delivered.
