So here is what I came up with, and SCORE I made a printable for you guys as well so you too can share the love with your kids teachers.
So yah, this is pretty self explanatory, but I am going to walk through it anyway...
I started with a small $1.29 bag of PeachieO's
Then I grabbed some previously received blue ribbon (don't you just love recycling useful items??) from my gift wrapping closet.
Since I had two gifts to make I used two pieces of ribbon per gift. I took the two pieces and tied them tightly around the bag about one third of the way down. Then after punching a hole in the top corner of the tag I inserted just one of the ends of the ribbon through the hole. Then picking up another end of the ribbon that's tied around the bag I tied another knot on top of the tag to secure it to the gift but keeping it still visible. If I had put both strings on one side through the hole might have A: torn the tag or B: been too much ribbon curliness on top of the tag, and since the tag pretty much makes the whole point of the gift that wouldn't have been too great.
Oh, and I made up the tag as a printable to be included in this post as well (as I so sweetly mentioned in the teaser earlier). Just right click then choose "save image as", saving it wherever you want to on your computer, and then you can print as many as your heart desires.
You will notice on mine that I actually added our family name at the bottom, but I was sweet enough to leave that off of this one. Cause hey, if your name isn't Rogers it would be kinda weird for you to give to your teachers..right? Right! So if you like you can edit this image with any image editing software, even one as simple as paint, and add your name to the bottom to personalize it.
I hope you enjoyed my simple, on the fly, inspiration for a thrifty teachers gift (a buck twenty nine anyone??).
Oh did I mention that they loved it? My eldest daughters teacher actually shared the goodies with her class, but the youngest's teacher savored hers all by herself (smart lady who wants a bunch of sugared up Kindergartners?? not her, or me for that matter!).
If you have any ideas on this type of simple "Thank You" let me hear them. I am always on the lookout for new ones, and I LOVE your comments!!!
Have a great day & God Bless!!
