Teacher Appreciation Glitter Shakers

If you have elementary age kids chances are you know next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. If you don't know, it is May 2-6 with Tuesday the 3rd being actual Teacher Appreciation Day.

We will be giving these as a small token of our appreciation. After all, they have to put up with my kid 5 days a week. They deserve much more.

So cute and simple to make.

Glitter shakers
Cute ribbon(I like wired for big bows)
Scrap book paper

I didn't want the label to show so I covered it with a strip of scrap book paper. I ran a thin line of hot glue at the ends to secure the new label.

I printed the saying on the back side of coordinating scrap book paper. Cute on both sides! Then finished it off with a big bow.

They are an inexpensive yet creative way to send your teachers a little love.

I'll be sharing HERE.
