Of anyone, teachers deserve a special dose of gratitude this Thanksgiving. It’s amazing what all they do, and how far my own kids have come in school thanks to some wonderful teachers. I truly don’t know how they do it, especially with a classroom full of rambunctious little ones. They give extra, so they should definitely get extra, too.
For all they do, I wanted to make some extra special thank you cards that also tied in the seasonal colors and textures of fall. Thus, while at the store I picked up packages of Extra gum, because what else?
When you give extra, you get Extra, too!
The first thing I did was to make a printable of the simple messages of appreciation I wanted to use in the card. For the front, it says “With (blank space to tie a pack of gum) Thanks”. And the inside, “For all you do, this Thanksgiving, I want to say, an Extra special, Thank you!”.
- brown sheets of cardstock
- packs of Extra gum
- fall-colored ribbon
- hole punch
- download Extra Thanks cover and inside card
Print the Extra Thanks cover on one side of cardstock. Once printed and the ink has dried, flip your sheet of cardstock over and print the inside message.
Once the messages are printed, gently and carefully punch 2 holes in the center of the cardstock. Guide a long string of ribbon through. Tie ribbon around your gum to secure, snipping away any excess ends.
Give Extra thanks!
These cards aren’t just great for teachers. As you can see, they’re a perfect way to share #ExtraGumMoments while giving thanks this time of year to anyone who has made a lasting impact in your life.
