This could possibly be the cutest way to give a gift card and to thank your child’s teacher for a job well done.  After all, they have taught and nurtured our children all year long so it is nice to say goodbye with a little gift.  So perhaps this teacher gift card holder will be perfect for your child’s teacher this year.

Using a fun folding technique, create three panels to customize and feature one or more gift cards.  Then make it extra special by having your child write a personal note that you can share on one of the panels!  So cute 🙂


You will need three 12″ * 12″ papers, plus additional complimentary papers and accessories.

30″ of ribbon


Paper trimmer and/or scissors

OPTIONAL – gift card
