What You Need to Make Teacher Gift Card Holders:
White Cardstock + printable teacher gift card template, printer (I use this HP Laserjet), Exacto Knife, Glue Gun, Wooden Dowels Trimmed to 5″, String, Pom Pom Trim, a gift card.
How to Make Banner Teacher Gift Card Holders:
- Download the printable gift card holders and print on white cardstock (I use Neenah 65# Bright White). Use an exacto knife or scissors to cut and fold according to instructions in PDF. You will need an exacto knife to cut the slits that the gift card holder will slide into.
- Use a hot glue gun to attach the wooden dowel to the inside of the card.
- Slip standard sized gift card in slits.
- Tie string around both ends of the wooden dowel to create a handle and embellish. Write a message on the inside of the banner and gift!
