getting end of year gifts ready

It's getting to be that time again...the end of the school year. End of Sunday school. End of dance. All of that means end of year gifts. My kids have just 2 weeks left of school so that gives me a little time for teacher gifts. But their last day of Sunday School was today so I had to get going on those gifts. I just got the teachers Panera gift cards and made these easy gift card holders:

To make the holder I took a piece of kraft cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and scored it at 1 3/4" to make the pocket. Then I sewed it and embellished with ribbon, patterned paper (Sassafras), a brad and journaling spot (Shabby Chic Crafts). The "thanks" stamp is from Everyday Flexible Phrases (Stampin' Up!). BTW, to put the brad on I simply cut part of the prongs off and used a glue dot to add it to the ribbon. (Carol, do the brads look familiar?? They're the ones I snatched out of your stash last weekend!)

I hope you're all having a Happy Mother's Day :)

Love the gifts! I had to go back and look at the brads again! So much better than anything I would have come up with. I want to see what you'll do with the Jenni Bowlin things. :)

I saw your gift card holders on Two Peas and love them. So cute - and Panera is the BEST! Thanks for the inspiration to get going on my end-of-year gifts for preschool and Sunday School teachers!
