School's Almost Out -- It's Time to Think About Teacher Gifts!

Why not get crafty and make her some notecards? It's fairly easy to do, and you can personalize them, making them even more special. The basic steps are as follows:

  • Cut 8 1/2 x 11"cardstock in half.
  • Make a 8.5 x5.5 layout, using any print program, or even microsoft word.
  • Personalize it with cute clipart and fonts. Many software programs have pre-made layouts and designs that you can use, if you need a little creative help! Several suggestions are to the right in the sidebar. notecard template
  • Print the cards.
  • Fold the cards in half.
  • You can even make matching envelopes if you like. Just make a layout for the size of the envelope, add clipart, and print the envelopes according to your printer's directions. I like to make the clipart on the envelopes somewhat transparent. (I use PAINT SHOP PRO PHOTO X2.

Scroll down for a free printable teachers card and envelope! Below are a few teacher cards that I made when my boys were younger. They seemed to be a big hit with the teachers. Use them for inspiration, or if you'd rather have me do the work, you can actually order them here.

And now for a freebie! Below is a teacher notecard that you can print out. Just click on one of the thumbnails. You can choose the generic version (A Note From the Teacher), or you can take the one with the blank blackboard to any print program and add text before printing. The 3rd thumbnail is a coordinating envelope. Just insert a notecard sized envelope (5.5x 4.25") into your printer and print.

First, click on a thumbnail, and you will be taken to the full size image in photobucket. Then right click and save to your computer, or just right click and print.
