It's teacher appreciation week, so I made a coffee sleeve for each teacher and added a gift card so they can treat themselves to a cup of coffee. The cup template is a free download I found here. But seriously, these coffee sleeves make great gifts for your neighbors, co-works or just to give it to a friend just because.
