It’s the end of the school year here and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved my kids teachers this year.
Which brings me to the end of the year teachers gifts.
I usually do gift cards but this year wanted to make them special some how.
After finding this youtube video, I modified it to fit into my idea.
(Note: I don’t have any of those fancy folding tools. I used my hands and the back of a pen cap)
The box opens into four “flaps.”
Each flap is a gift card holder.
The “Eat” one is for Panera Bread.
The “Drink” one is for Starbucks.
The “Read” one is for Barnes and Nobel
So what do you think? I love them and really this sort of gift card box can be used for any occasion. Costs just a few pieces of paper too.
Reasonable and cute.
Now pass me the wine. I’ve got 4 more to do.
(Though I did not come up with the box idea, the concept of Eat, Drink, Read is all my own.)
I have never, in my over 10 years of teaching, gotten an end of the year gift or teacher appreciation gift that wasn't donuts or bagels from administration. I have gotten a few random baby gifts (so sweet) and random jars of homemade salsa.
I want to teach your children. Just for the gifts.
I'm nothing if not honest.

I WANT you to teach my kids. They're available for the next 3 months.
Awesome idea and since my son doesn't get out of preschool until the end of June I still have plenty of time to whip 2 up.

I wish I loved both my girls' teachers.
That is so cool!!
LOve this idea. Of course, it makes my thank you card and gift card seem like SHIt now:) lol Hopefully, my kids teachers don't read your blog or my ass fell short of the high standard you set> go you! you rock!
I will be sending you my address now….

I love this! The drink,eat,read part is genius. Im gifting my kid's teacher a card for a local bookstore but probably just throwing together a felt holder for it- we're pretty much swimming in felt around here.

Felt. You could totally make a felt fish with the card sticking out of it's mouth attached to a fishing pole to give. "I hope you catch a great read this summer" See?!
I should really stop. I"m starting to nauseate myself.
Lol,nausousness aside- I'm still going to have to use that now- thank you Lady Awesome!
Overachieving, Pinterest Worthy, Envious. I do think it's brilliant, damn you. Off to find my paper cutter.
Yes. A paper cutter I DO have. Have fun. :)
Love it :-) I want all gift cards given to me like that!

How do you make them?
The you tube video shows how. I did modify it though because I wanted a ribbon handle so my kids could carry them to school. I used double sided scrapbook paper which was $1.20 a sheet. Each box cost less than $3.
I love this! If only I had enough ambition to make some of these for all those gifts I never feel like buying for birthdays & holidays!
I'm 100% jealous. I'm still deciding if I want to pitch in on the group gift or do my own (target card – lazy, but for the win).
My recent post Your legacy…
You are a goddess. I bow down to you. Now can you make some for me?
That's so cool! What a great idea! :)
You. Are. Cerifiable. And thanks for screwing up the curve. Overachiever. ;)
This is very cool.

My friends who are teachers will shit their pants when they see this. So many parents give wooden apple stuff… you rock.

That is such an awesome idea!
Now that I've quit my job, I'm in the market for some students! I'll teach your kids if it means cute gifts like that!
Super cute – If i got that, I would be stoked!
My recent post Maegan – This is your life
Brilliant! It's like a cootie-catcher for grownups. But with prizes!
Oh, I love these! What a great idea!
Eeee!!!!! I LOVE this! perfect!
You're so crafty! Love it.
I love it!!
My recent post Memory
Very impressive! I love the concept!
Now you're making ME hot. :)
My recent post If Only My Card-Carrying Teenage Music Fanatic Self Could Have Carried Cards Like These…
Well, it also costs the amount on each gift card. Great idea, but curious about that!
Agreed. You could do $5 on each card. Or you could put a little message on 3 of the flaps and give one card.
That is unbelievably cool! You rock.
