Just Because Gifts

Giving and receiving is fun.  It's even more fun when it's just because!

We put together these large reusable drinking cups and straws, filled with goodies for the teachers at our schools.  School is up and running, everyone is back to the routine, and the learning is in full force.  A little thank you and we appreciate you gift is always a good thing for anyone.  Teachers, sisters, wives, moms, you know.  

A mini hand sanitizer - pretty much a requirement around little kids.
A pack of gum
Small packs of almonds
Starbucks VIA iced coffee packs
Burt's Bees lip balm

That is all we could stuff in there!

We stayed true to our school colors and kept things as orange and black as we could.  Then added circles with inked edges, and a little bow.  A little tip:  Zots adhesive dots work really well on the circles, for layering the two different papers and sticking them to the cup.  

Show your teachers a little love!
I'll be sharing {HERE}, of course.
