Easy Teacher Gift Craft “Thanks a Latte” Starbucks Gift Card

I wanted to give each of my children’s FIFTEEN teachers (!!) a gift they could use in a fun and whimsical way. Knowing the popularity of Starbucks nowadays, I thought a “Thanks a Latte” card might be a cute way to present giving the gift of coffee! Originally inspired from this post, I created my own version of this awesome gift card for you below with different color options! Find all the different printable color options here.

I didn’t have good card stock to print it on at home, so I decided to have it printed at my local Walgreens on 4×6 paper. It came out BEAUTIFULLY.

I visited my local Starbucks to grab the holiday gift cards and fifteen paper coozies to staple to the card, like this:

Two notes (warnings) here: Firstly, you can decide to cut the coozie, which makes the card less bulky (like I did), but ONLY if you seal the bottom to the card (which I did not). You can seal it either by stapling or glue or using double-sided tape. I didn’t do this, because all I had handy was my baby stapler, and it wasn’t long enough to reach. I could have kept the coozie together and pre-stapled the bottom to avoid this problem, though – something I didn’t think of until it was already done.

Secondly, staple towards the edge more than I did, if you want the gift card to sit width-wise, and not cover up the letters on the card (another something I didn’t do properly). I couldn’t fit it that way with how close I stapled, which made the card sit as you see below:

Still not bad, though. I just had to be sure the kids held their cards carefully when handing out (if not in an envelope). But, better be safe than sorry, put it into an envelope to give, with or without a holiday card inside. We chose to give a holiday card with it, from our family to the teacher:

Isn’t it adorable? I had my children sign their name with permanent marker. I loved the quality of the print and how the coozies added that coffee flair. Find all the color options and print these awesome Thanks a Latte cards here.
