Teacher gift and a pink yard bird…

I made these pear notecards for my daughters teacher (according to Cassidy, her teacher LOVES pears).  I found a great envelope template that I used to make the envelopes at How About Orange.  For the envelopes I used 80# coated stock and added a strip of double-stick tape onto the flap so that the user can pull off the backing and seal the envelope without glue.
The little basket contains some pink flamingo items, and is a running joke. Each Christmas someone in my family gives a gag gift that is something with a pink flamingo (we are not fans of the plastic yard birds!).  Thanks to my aunt I have this little lovely on my tree:
So this year I found a few items containing the fugly bird and made her the little basket, including notecards, pink flamingo socks and pins.

    Your cards turned out really cute! The pear paper reminds of the downloadable stuff Lolly Chops has. Maybe I’ll have to make my own set. Love the hint on how to make them sealable.
