First, download the pdf files. Print on cardstock and cut out. Make sure you print ACTUAL SIZE so the holders are sized properly.

{Free Printable Amazon Gift Card Holder for Teachers}

If you have an amazing teacher, Amazon is a great idea. I am sure any teacher, no matter which subject they teach, could put an Amazon gift card to good use!

The best part of this fun teacher gift idea is that is can be totally last-minute. Print off the cardholder, fold it up and head to your local grocery store for a gift card. This can be done on the way to school.

The designs are all black and white, which makes them perfect for printing on colored cardstock.  I found cardstock with a metallic look, kraft colored paper, paper with raised little dots and a variety of bright colors… and all of the papers printed perfectly on my home printer.

No worries if you don’t want to give a gift card. Simply arrange some cut flowers in a mason jar, cut along the dotted lines, and fold it into a gift tag or into charming little note cards. In fact, they all make cute tags by just cutting off the flaps!

    As my son is wrapping up pre-school heading to kindergarten, this is the best I have found in mid-summer gift giving. I am going to put little pots together for his 5 teachers to pick from as they say goodbye with these darling cards with a variety of gifts to their liking. Thank you so much!

    I ordered these and accidentally hit the back arrow then when I tried to go back it said the page had expired. I never got to print them. I’d like my money refunded. Thank you!

    NOTE - make sure your printer is set to "actual size" or these will default print at "fit" and you'll end up like me (printing, cutting and gluing 15 of them on expensive cardstock from a store 40 minutes from home, that are then slightly too small to fit the gift card in.)

      Thank you so much, Tania! I will add this to the post. I do try to make all my printables here print to actual size. I am so sorry it messed up your paper and the waste. You must have been so frustrated.

    Jeeeez, adorable! Actually we're looking for something cute for our teacher. And it has to be still nice and useful. Last year we bought her star from heaven from Kingdom of universe, and she really admired that! just now we want something useful. Thanks for ideas!
