A Clean Teacher Appreciation Gift

Teacher Appreciation Gifts
We had a few requests for more teacher gift ideas so here you go!
This practical teacher gift idea is always needed! Now you can personalize it for your teachers.
I have seen a few different tutorials out there on how to make these, but Alison had a different spin on it with, of course, vinyl. And, I might add, she took these pictures – is she getting good or what?
1. Buy your soap or anti-bacterial stuff (you can get them at the dollar store). This is a fun way to give something inexpensive, but to make it unique! During this flu season I think your teachers will be grateful:)
2. Peel off your labels.
3. Use a goo remover. If you let it sit for a minute then it wipes off easily.
5. Apply vinyl.
6. Add ribbon. The bigger bottle is hand sanitizer.
Don’t have access to vinyl??
Some of the other tutorials I saw said to print your lettering on velum and then put it on the inside of the bottle where it would show through. I liked this vinyl method, however, because then the recipient can re-fill it when it runs out!
Here are some links to other ideas I found:
Post It holder from sistersstuff. She just used a plastic frame from the dollar store, framed a cute piece of scrapbook paper, put post-it notes on the top of the frame, and added some ribbon. EASY - my kind of craft!
A clever way to wrap up some goodies from Family Fun.
Our Best Bites had this fun idea for chocolate turtles.
These are really easy. I have my kids help arrange the THREE ingredients and that’s really all there is to it. I haven’t made these particular ones, but I have made something similar with pretzels, Hersey kisses, and m&ms. You just put the Hersey kisses on the pretzels (I like the square ones for this), bake them until they are soft, put an m&m on top and squish it down (the fun part). They taste like chocolate covered pretzels, but much easier!
