Can you believe it is time to start thinking about going back to school?! I can’t! My kids go back mid August, but I know people who start the end of July (year round), and the first week of August. Where did the summer go? It went by way to fast!
This is a post I shared over at Keeping it Simple last spring, for a teacher appreciation gift, but gifts like this work for any time of the year. I asked the question over on Facebook a while back, if those that were teachers would appreciate getting a stack of note cards as a gift. I had lots of teachers chime in and said they would love it.
These kinds of cards are the best. Of course you could make a whole set that matched, but I chose to make several different cards. I personally don’t like to make several of the exact same thing, and when I made these cards, I just used my scraps, so it worked out great! I inked the edges of the gray cardstock, then cut papers and stamped and embellished until I liked it.
I figured that 10 cards was a good amount to give, so that’s what I did.
I chose to add the envelopes and give it all as a set tied up with some cute bakers twine. The best part, you could give it as is, add a tag, or put it in a gift bag. Of all the teachers that I’ve met and worked with, I know any of them would love this, no matter how it was given to them.
Do you give your kids teachers a Back to School gift?
