“Best in the Universe” Gift Card Holder FREEBIE

“Best in the Universe” Gift Card Holder FREEBIE

I have seen some pretty amazing Teacher Appreciation gifts on Pinterest, but I have to be honest. I am much better at pinning ideas than actually MAKING the projects I have pinned. Are you with me on this? And really, who doesn’t love a gift card?! I created this gift card holder to coordinate with the Space themed Staff Appreciation Week at my daughter’s school. Please enjoy this free 5×7 printable with my compliments! It can be used for teacher appreciation, birthdays… anything, really! Visit my sister site, Simply Styled Home to download the file.

Last week, after posting this photo of my recent Persnickety Prints order on Facebook, I received multiple comments asking how I create my pages.

Did I mention I received my layouts three days after placing my order? Amazing. If you have never used Persnickety…
