As May winds to an end…..Graduations and End of Year Thank-yous are upon us! 
I have to admit that I often give gift cards for these events!  
Graduates AND Teachers love gift cards!
The trick to making a gift card personal is the presentation!

These are the simplest little gift bags that you can make using a single piece of  decorative scrapbook paper!

I like the fact that there are two little pockets on bag.

One side for the gift card….
The other side for a heartfelt note!

Remember that those notes to thank the teacher are actually MORE appreciated than the actual gift…. In fact…you wouldn’t even need a gift..just have one side include a thank-you from your student and the other side from you!

 I made the little green bag out of a half sheet of paper!
I put together a Pinterest Board with some other very fun gift card presentations!
Hop over and take a peek!
