I know this is a little late, but I was totally swamped at the end of the school year… like CRAZY busy! So, hopefully someone out there is still in school and could use a fast teacher gift.
I love simplicity…(sometimes, I’ll be honest, I usually get in over my head on projects. So, simplicity this school year was what I needed.) If you’re in a crunch for time and need a super quick & easy & inexpensive teacher gift, this is the perfect gift for you.
All you’ll need is:
- Regular mouth jar (any size) The printable is sized for a REGULAR mouth jar, not wide mouth.
- Almond Joy Pieces or York minis (one full bag is needed for pint jars, the jars in my pictures are 1/2 pint)
- Scissors & a Small Hole punch (or a Silhouette cutting machine)
- Free Love you to Pieces Printable (Click the title to the left)
- or Free Love you to Pieces Silhouette print & cut file (Click the title to the left)
- Cardstock or Print paper (I like to use cardstock, it’s more sturdy)
These little bags were only $2.50 each at Walmart. You may be able to find them on sale or a coupon somewhere to get them even cheaper. I also used some jars that I had on hand already.
All you have to do is pick which file you want, the Love you to Pieces PDF free printable or the Love you to Pieces Silhouette free print & cut file. The PDF will need to be cut by hand, with scissors and you’ll need to punch a hole in the top of the tag. With the Silhouette file, just save it and then you can open it in your Silhouette program, print and then cut. The tags will automatically have a little hole in the top.
Print & cut your file.
Fill your container with candy. Then place the Love you to Pieces saying on the top of the seal and screw on the lid.
Have your child sign the teacher’s name and their own. OR, you may choose to do it for him/her.
Cut your ribbon and string through your tag. Tie to the jar with a bow.
You’re done! Easy Peasy!!
If you choose to use other “pieces”, print the tags in black & white. Or, if you have photo editing software you may be able to change the color scheme in your program. Play with the colors. I just loved the blue option, because our school colors are blue & white.
I hope you enjoy your Free Love you to Pieces teacher gift printable!
Drop me a line and let me know how you used it. I love comments!
