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.

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.
