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
