Grab two free printable teacher appreciation cards to just add restaurant or coffee gift cards to plus browse through a list of other teacher appreciation cards for that special teacher!
Teacher appreciation week is fastly approaching! Can you believe we are almost at the end of another school year? It’s time to give the teachers that put so much love and time into our kiddos a little something special.
Teacher appreciation is the first full week of May here in the United States.
I served as teacher appreciation co-coordinator for three years on our PTO at our local elementary school and have hosted teacher luncheons and made all sorts of different things over the years. If you are a room parent or in charge of teacher appreciation, I have a whole post on easy and simple teacher appreciation ideas for those that I think have the hardest job!
This year I’m not in charge of anything and I plan on just giving our wonderful teachers cards with gift cards. Teachers LOVE gift cards probably more than anything else you can give them.
I made two super easy printable teacher appreciation cards this year and wanted to share how easy it is to add a gift card to your favorite teacher. Now, I can’t take credit for the cute sayings, I have a friend who is a teacher who has a gift for words!
Then at the bottom of the post, I have a list of some other amazing greeting cards for teachers from other bloggers!
My youngest can be a handful so I had to make the coffee gift card printable funny. This wouldn’t have been as funny with my two other kids!

How to Put Together Free Printable Teacher Appreciation Cards
The first thing you’ll want to do is download the printable that you want.
Then, print out the card on white cardstock.
Trim off the extra paper with a trimmer or scissors. I left about 1/4″ around the green box.
Then you’ll need to make a slit a little bit bigger than your gift card. I sliced mine a little more than 2 inches. Place a ruler down and use and x-acto knife to cut. I cut towards the top of the dark brown part of the coffee cup and above the “take out” on the other.
Flip over the card and apply a tape glider or glue stick to the back side. Make sure not to put any glue below the slit where the gift card will be slid into. Apply glue all around edges and then some above the slit.
Center the printed card on contrasting card stock. I place it about 1/2 inch from two of the edges. Press it down.
Trim off the other two sides so that they are all about the same size.
Now, simply slide the gift card in the slit leaving about 1/3 of the gift card sticking out the top.
And you’re done! Make it extra special by having your child write a personal message on the backside. You can put it in a large envelope or gift bag for the teacher.
