Teacher Thank You Gift

Today I made the kids' end of the year, teacher gift.  I read online somewhere that you could get a sandwich gift card and say, "There's no "sub"stitute for you!"  I thought it was too cute, and actually, you can use it for anyone, not just teachers!  I wanted to make a sandwich card for it to go in so here is what I did.

Here's what you'll need:
construction paper
glue stick
cutting board (optional, but very helpful)

I cut a 9x12 piece of construction paper in half so it was 9x6.  I folded it in half and then cut it at 3 1/2" to fit the envelope I was using, and to give it a nice long shape.

I cut an curvy oval shape leaving the fold intact.
 Cut some lettuce to fit in the sub.
 Put in in the "bread" until you get it how you want.
 Glue it down.
 Cut tomatoes.  I triple folded the paper so I'd get 3 slices per sandwich. (we'll come back to this)
 I decided I wanted to do cheese next.  I cut two slices each of yellow and orange into square-ish shapes and laid them out where I wanted them.
 Now glue the TOP of the bread.
 And fold over so the cheese gets glued to the top of the bread.
 It will look like this when you open it.
 Take a brown crayon and draw some pointy ovals to make it look like yummy bread.
 Open up your sandwich, add your tomato slices and writing.  I wrote in black crayon, "There is no "sub"stitute for a great teacher.  Thanks for everything!"
I had the kids write on the tomato slices: To: Mrs.  So-and-so, LOVE, Joe-mama  ;o) 
I went to Subway and got gift cards to put in the cards.
It was a hit!

What have you done for teacher thank yous?

Lots o' Love,
