My friend is an ENT and helped us out with something. I thought a felt ear with "Thank You" written on removable ear wax was the perfect way to say thanks.
First I cut the following pieces out of felt:
I then sewed the two duplicate pieces of the ear together with a blanket stitch:
Then I sewed the little flap on leaving the right side of it unstitched so it forms a pocket for the ear wax.
I then took a Sharpie Stained fabric marker and drew on the rest of the ear and wrote "Thank you" on the wax.
And that was it! My son liked it so much I had to make him one too.
I tried to convince my friend that this would make a fabulous business card, as long as people didn't lose the ear wax with all the contact info on it. I don't think he was convinced.
