Wrap it up Thursday - Teacher Gifts

As mentioned last week, I wanted to wrap up my purchased (Yeah!) Teacher Gifts with something simple.  To have this almost complete a couple weeks before school is out is a major accomplishment around here. (Remember our holiday gift)  So when I considered chalkboard cookies or making a key for our tag, one of my two daughters had to remind me that we were going with a ready to go gift in order not to have a stress during exams.  

Okay, all right, but I couldn't help making them a little extra special and when we found this chalkboard style quote from Balancing Home, we knew we had a theme.  

After a download(following their directions), print and mount on black construction paper, we added a name tag, chalkboard style with a white watercolour pencil.  On the box there is one picture showing our water bottle with an infusion of cucumber.  I found some recipes from NancyCreative.  Yumm .  I've been trying them the last few days to perk up my filtered water at home.  I love the citrus and fresh mint (centre)  We wrapped up the print-out of  recipes with twine and we will place it in the bottle, for ideas on how to use the water bottle.

I hope it comes in handy for all our teachers, office staff and bus driver.  I really respect the work that our teachers do and I can truly say that,

A Teacher takes a hand, opens a mind & touches a heart

ps.  sorry wrap it up Thursday is on Friday - it's been a busy week

  4. SO adorable!!! I forget how much I enjoy infused waters and until I see a pretty post like this -thanks for the reminder. I have mint growing in a pot in my garden right now - I think I'll go pick some for my water :-) Thank you too for the link to those tags - love them!

  6. That is such a good idea! I am going to give my son's teacher a 'welcome to summer' gift with a beach towel, sunscreen, and a magazine (we live at the beach). Now I am going to incorporate that wonderful printable! Oh, I am from BYI.

    Thanks doll,
