I pulled this off of another blog and for the life of me I can’t seem to find it now. If anybody knows what blog I’m talking about, I’d love to give the gal some credit!
I did make some tweaks, though, as hers seemed very tedious to me (as in, she actually got out a ruler) and I am just not a very patient person!
I decided to just hit the dollar section at the front of Michael’s and picked up these chipboard booklets, all ready to go for just $1. (Let me say sorry now for the sideways pics! Don’t know why some are and some aren’t, but I know even less about how to fix it. I can craft, craft, craft… but keep me away from this technical stuff!)
Then I just cut my scrapbook paper to fit, cut a piece of plain paper to fit on top and attached them all using double-sided tape. I had Stevie write the captions so it would be more personal than just typing it up.
I lurve how it turned out and so did the teacher! The gift cards are each for $5 so including the $1 I spent on the booklet (I had all the papers), it was only $21 for a teacher who was highly deserving!
And because 5 pictures seems to max out my attention span, I somehow missed taking a pic of the last gift card. It was for Blockbuster and said, “See a good movie”. I know the original lady who came up with this idea made all kinds of matching little envelopes to hold the gift cards. Me?? Lazy once again. I just attached the little holders they came in- I thought they were pretty enough as is!
*Wanted to just add that our gift cards are for Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, Dairy Queen and Bath & Body Works*
