thanks a "latte"


i think it's safe to say that most teachers are fans of some type of coffee house.
and i think it's safe to say that most of us appreciate all that those teachers do...
a latte!! (a lot... get it?)



what you'll need:
  • 5x7 thanks a latte print found here or at the bottom of this post (i had mine printed at Costco)
  • a coffee sleeve (i used the backside of one from starbucks)
  • white or kraft cardstock
  • twine (i used the caribbean color)
  • stapler and double sided tape (or other adhesive)
  • gift card for starbucks (or other coffee house)
how to put it together:
  • attach the print to a 5.5" x 7.5" piece of cardstock
  • trim the coffee sleeve to 4" wide (cutting with the corrugated lines)
  • place a piece of double sided tape to the very bottom of sleeve and attach to print
  • staple sides of the sleeve and insert card
  • tie some fun twine around your gift
**for extra fun, place the card inside of a paper pastry bag and hand out to all of those well-deserving teachers.

  12. Oh man, I could have used that two weeks ago, the PTO at our school bought $5 gift cards from Starbucks for all of the teachers.... and I wrote "for all you do" on all 95 of the envelopes! Man, you guys are sooo smart!

  17. This is so cute! I love all of your printables! What program do you use to create them?

  18. What are you printing them on? Card stock? You said you printed yours through Costco. Are you printing this on photo paper? I love Costco, but am thinking I might not know about a service they offer!

  26. Love it! Thanks for turning a simple gift card into such a fun gift! And not only that, but you've given us a new fun place to go for treats!

Lol!

  28. This is so cute! I get a lot of Starbucks cards from my students for various reasons, but nothing packaged as cute as this.

  29. I LOVED this idea and made them for my daughter's preschool teachers. The size printed out larger than yours, so I used the cardboard cuff as is, flattened and glued down, making a pocket for the gift card. Teachers loved them:
