1st day of school teacher gift idea
August 5, 2010 by Missy
we are the sisters fromeighteen25
and we are beyond thrilled to be posting over here on the awesome blog how does she!
we’d like to share an idea for the first day of school.
just a little gift for the teachers.
your kids will be getting an A+ before they are even asked to pick up a pencil!
what you’ll need:
a chinese take out box. (we picked ours up at michael’s craft store)
fortune cookies. (you can find them at smart n final or albertsons)
the label. (Download Fortunatetohaveyou)
a 4″ scalloped circle.
a sheet of tissue paper.
optional: milk chocolate melts and sprinkles/jimmies.
now all you need to do is:
print your label and cut it out. (we used a 3″ circle punch)
glue the label to the scalloped circle and attach to the front of the box.
add the sheet of tissue paper to the bottom of the box.
and fill it up with fortune cookies.
tie a bow on the handle.
it’s as simple as that…
now if you want to earn extra credit:
follow the instructions on the bag for melting the chocolate.
dip half of the cookie in the chocolate and then set it on some wax paper.
while the chocolate is still wet. sprinkle on some sprinkles or jimmies.
then wait for the chocolate to harden and fill your boxes with them.
for the next two weeks,
we’ll be sharing some other fun back to school ideas.
so please come on over and check them out.
thanks for having us!
