At the end of each school year I try to give my children's teachers a gift to thank them for all they've done. For this past school year I decided to make a little booklet full of gift certificates that the teachers could use over the summer. I went and bought five different gift certificates (most of them just $5 a piece) from stores here in town.
Here's the booklet I made to hold the gift certificates.
I personalized each booklet with the teacher's name. If I had had more time I would have added some layers and decorated the front a little better, but I was making these the night before school let out. I wasn't able to come up with a gift idea and the day before school let out my friend shared this fantastic idea with me. Talk about cutting it close!
Here's the first page with a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble.
This gift certificate was to Baskin-Robbins.
This gift certificate was to Blockbuster.
This gift certificate was to Trader Joe's.
This gift certificate was to Bath and Body Works. I did make two of these for male teachers so instead of it saying "pamper herself," I changed it to "pamper his wife."
These were a huge hit. One of the teachers liked it so much that she asked me to make some for her to give as birthday gifts and Christmas gifts. So I have a couple more designs to show you later this week. (I posted a tutorial on how to make these here.)
