Teacher’s Gift: Handmade Birthday Card Pack

Teacher’s are usually really good about recognizing all their students’ birthdays and we all know how pricey cards can get.  I always like to give Madison’s teachers a pack (or a few) of handmade cards so they don’t have to dig into their own pockets for cards.  That’s one thing I can easily contribute  and I always have fun making them.  I like to make a bunch and tie them up in a cute little package so it’s as much fun for the teacher to receive as it is for her/him to give!

And it’s fun to let the kids help in whatever their age allows, whether that’s making the cards, attaching a sticker or even writing a personal gift tag note.  (Even if they don’t get the spelling completely right.)


I got a chance to try out the new David Tutera paper crafts line (available at Jo-Ann stores) to see just how easy card-making can be.  It’s so easy to make fun cards with this 1-2-3 set-up.  Everything is labeled by size and step.

David Tutera Card making supplies

1.  Choose a card.  2.  Choose a layer.  3.  Then choose an embellishment.  It’s that easy!

 1.  I chose size C which is  4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card

2.  I used double stick tape to attach a layer onto the top.

3.  Then I added one of the embellishments.

I made sure to add the embellishment on opposite sides of every other card so the whole stack wouldn’t be lopsided.

I made six Birthday cards in all and tried to make a variety, suitable for either gender.


The next step is to tie it up into a pretty package with some twine, also in the embellishment line.


…and then let your little sweetie write a special gift tag for his or her teacher.


This is a great teacher’s gift that you could help your child make and what child wouldn’t be thrilled to receive a Birthday note on one of the special cards that THEY helped make?


I know Madison always LOVED it!
