Teacher Non-Christmassy Gifts

TGIF!!!
We're in the midst of the after effects of an ice storm right now....no fun at all!!!!!!! I hope you all are keeping safe and completely warm!!

These clear pails are for my younger one's teachers. I filled them with different types of chocolate and a mini candle in a jar. It also fits with yesterday's challenge on SCS to make a last minute gift....I do believe I achieved that part with no problem! I didn't want to make these too Christmassy so instead of using my X-mas rub-ons, I used my retired Love & Happiness ones and Holiday Treasures dsp. The paper is beautiful and I think it's pretty versatile as it lends itself to more than one Holiday--gotta love that! I also made a couple of snow globe ornaments to hang off the handle instead of ribbon. I think this is just more appealing in this case than a bunch of ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and take care!!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  2. I just love those. I love rub-ons they are so quick and easy and look fabulous. I just have to keep them away from my 5 year old because she loves them more than I do.

  10. Speaking as a teacher, this would be great to receive, and the pail could be used again after the chocolate (another great teacher gift!) was quickly eaten.
