Send your child back to school with a fun and exciting teacher gift. Teacher gifts are a great way to break the ice between student and teacher. A simple DIY craft tutorial idea.
Today is the first day of school for my kiddos!
Sorry for the pause, I was doing the happy dance!
To get the year off to a great start I made little teacher gifts so the kids had a good way to say hello to their new teacher. There isn’t anything wrong with a little brown-nosing is there 🙂
Using the supplies I already had on hand, they were very inexpensive and easy to do. Feel free to adjust the supplies needed to fit what you already have too!

- Big Shot

You are Mint to be my Teacher!
Begin by filling each pencil box with the Lifesavers mints.
The tags were made using Word and then cut out using a 2 1/2 inch circle punch and the Scallop Circles #2 die cut for the big shot.
I asked the kids to hand write a little message to their new teacher on the back of the tags.
Then tied the tags on with the ribbon.
They turned out super cute and the kids were very excited to have the gift to give their teachers.
I got my idea from Simply Kierste who posted this idea and I just tweaked it a little bit. Thanks Kierste!
