Teacher Gift Idea: Target Gift Card Holder {with free printable}

I like to get the boys' teachers a little gift at the end of the year to show our appreciation for the time and effort they have put in with the kids all year. Last year, I designed a cute coffee cup card with Starbucks and Target gift cards. This year, I decided to just do Target gift cards, and I found this cute idea via Pinterest, of course. She offers a free printable on her blog, but I wanted to change it up a bit with my own fonts, so I recreated it, adding a bit more color and some arrows, too, to go with the bullseye theme.

I printed the page and allowed it to dry. Next, I marked where I wanted the gift card to be, then used an exact-o knife to cut around the white circle of the bullseye.

Then, I slipped the gift card down in. By keeping the opening snug, it should stay in place on its own, but you can add a piece of tape under it to be sure. I attached the card to a piece of plain black card stock, to help keep the card in place.

Next, I dressed it up with some baker's twine (purchased at Michaels) and a chalkboard gift tag (found in the Target Dollar Spot!). It would also be easy to use some of the extra black card stock to create a tag. I used a metallic silver Sharpie to write on the tag.


Here is a link to the free printable. The card is a 5" x 7" card, and you can print this page with 2 cards on a regular 8.5" x 11" sheet.

If you're interested in a cute, updated printable featuring Bullseye, the Target dog, please visit my Etsy shop. It's available for just $3! :)
