Easy Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea


 ** Updated with new printable May 2, 2016**

Teacher Appreciation Gift and Printable Idea.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week!  

This is such a fun and quick idea for a gift for all those teachers in your life. And budget friendly too!

Tip Junkie had the most adorable “smartie pants” Valentines and I really wanted to incorporate that idea into the gift for our special teachers.  I found this adorable glass jar at our local Dollar Tree, that was just big enough for handful of Smarties!  {affiliate links} If want the convenience of ordering online, you can get the same glass jar and smarties online. 

Here’s what I did…

I selected a cute blue and white polka-dot scrapbook paper and printed Tip Junkie’s free printable onto the back of the paper. Then I simply cut out the pants and attached them to the glass jar with a bright red, grosgrain ribbon!  I created my own little tag with words, and cut them out and taped it to the jar after having my daughter sign them.

**UPDATE You can download the printable with words HERE! **

What a perfect, simple, inexpensive little gift for a teacher! You could use this for teacher appreciation or even your child’s “end of the year” teacher gift!

Inexpensive,adorable, and sweet… you just gotta love dollar store crafts!!
