Teacher Gifts

Happy Wednesday to ya! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the Christmas season! I know it is easy to get stressed out with fitting it all in at this time of year - I know I am struggling to not let it get the best of me! My kids get out of school on Friday and I am really looking forward to some down time with them.

Today, I have some Teacher Gifts to share with you that I made for my kid's teachers.
I found these cute coffee mugs at Target (actually my friend Dee picked them up for me!) The tall chocolate one was $1.99 and the shorter Teal one was $2.99! Bargain!
I filled them with a Gourmet Cocoa Packet, a Chocolate Dipped Biscotti and a small bag of marsh mellows. This is the tag I made for each of the gifts. The stamp is from PTI's 2009 Holiday Tag Collection and the sentiment is from PTI's Holiday Treats Set. I used Aqua Mist & Spring Moss cardstock along with my circle and tag nesties and Copics to throw together these simple little 3 x 3 gift tag. I added some clear Stickles, a MS Snowflake and PTI button and jute twine to finish it off. To attach it to the package, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes. I swear, that is one of the best investments I ever made. I only have the original pink handled one, but it has been so handy over the years. It punches through everything!
For the bag of marsh mellows, I used a small SU cellophane bag. I punched a huge Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and covered it with some MS Snow Glitter. I tied the bag up with some Ocean Tides Twill Ribbon (PTI).

Well, that's all for tonight! I am hitting the sack as they say! It has been a long and trying week and it is only Wednesday! Merry Christmas! ~Tori
