Thank You Coach(es)!

I was trying to think of a gift for my daughter's Cheer coaches, there are four of them.  So after scouring Pinterest for ideas, I found this on The Frugal Girls website.  Walmart was all out of the clipboards that are suggested, so I went to Staples and purchased the wooden ones.  So these do not look quite the same as the one on their site, but hopefully the Coaches will enjoy.

I chose decorative paper from Michael's in the school's colors.  This is actually card stock which they suggest on The Frugal Girls site not to use because of bubbles.  It did bubble up, but after it dried they went away.

Cut the paper to size, and I left about 1/4" around the edges, leave room for the cut out at the top.  Use modge podge to adhere and then apply a coat or two after it dries. 

I put ribbon on the top and bottom in the school's colors and decorated it with cheer stickers and the coach's names.  Also added ribbon to cover over the hole (kind of reminds me of pom poms). :)

  1. Such a great idea.... MUCH more personable than the gift cards that are typically given to coaches as thank you gifts! Keep 'em coming for those of us who are craft-challenged. :)
