Teacher Appreciation Gift Cards

I’m not always good at planning ahead when it’s time to give gifts. I want to make a big, impressive, straight-from-the-heart homemade craft project, but usually, run out of time and end up grabbing a gift card the day before. It can’t just be me who has this problem, right?!

These free printable Teacher Appreciation Week cards are for all of us crafty wannabes – the gals who love Pinterest but just can’t seem to make it to Michael’s in time. And, for us gals who have a sassy sense of humor. Now, without further ado… here are my free printable teacher appreciation day cards! I think they will be an appreciated gift that makes your teacher smile.

Printable Thank You Teacher Cards

These printable cards are the perfect thank-you for a teacher!  There are three designs so you can pick your favorite saying, or give them to different teachers. The red and orange one coordinates perfectly with a Target card, and the green and blue one goes great with a Starbucks gift card, but it’s really up to you.

And of course, making these cards is a cinch – just print the design of your choice onto white cardstock, cut the cards out, and adhere the back to the front (to add that extra-snazzy patterned back). Stick on your gift card, sign your name or leave a little handwritten note, and you’re good to go. If you need an envelope, these fit a standard A7 size envelope… or just go without an envelope, I won’t tell!

Click here to download the free printable Teacher Appreciation Cards! I hope you enjoy the cards and that you get a few laughs too! Your teacher will so appreciate a gift card. You might also like these teacher gift card holders.

The text on these cards is so funny, with three narrowly averted craft project disasters – like “I almost gave you a life-size diorama of your classroom made out of crayons” – that will definitely make your teachers laugh. They’ve all been there, either getting overwhelmed with crafts themselves or getting… unique little gifts from their students over the years.

How about “I almost made you quadruple dark chocolate upside down bacon glazed cake pops” to poke fun at those of us who like to try experimental recipes found on Pinterest? They’ll be laughing with relief at the thought! And I’m pretty sure your teacher will appreciate an Amazon gift card even more after reading “I got out the Mod Podge, the Circuit machine, and thirty-two shades of glitter.”

  2. I really like your blog. However, when I try to print many of the “Printable” pages/recipes it just goes back to the “Join up” . Can you tell me how to print the pages. Do I have to keep joining up to be able to print?

  3. Michelle, you do need to have the free version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to download and print pdfs. Once you install that all the printables on my site should work.

  4. Michelle, you need the free version of adobe acrobat installed on your computer. Once you have that, click on the link and you should be able to download and print. Hope this helps.

  5. How do I get the Printables? Everytime I click on a link it wants me to download a PDF converter. Which I did at first but still couldn’t get the downloads. Booo

  6. Kathy, I just checked and the printable is three pages. When you are ready to print, choose the page you want to print. Make sure your printer is not set to print two-sided (this will print 2 and 3 on the same page. I hope this helps. Sorry you had trouble.

  7. Why when you print the 3 teacher appreciation cards card 2 and 3 print on the same paper. One on the front and one on the back. What a waist of ink!!
