Teacher Gifts

Yeah, vacation has officially started!! Woohoo!! I get two weeks off work and my kids last day of school was today. We are all very excited. Now it's really starting to feel like the holidays. I had fun making some teacher thank you gifts this year. Check out these treat cones!!

I love to bake but you don't have be a wizard in the kitchen to give great treats to your friends and family. Creating a special package for your store-bought treat makes it extra special. For this cone, I cut an 8 inch circle on my Cricut using the North Pole collection by Crate Paper (you can find it at Posh Designs Store!!). Then I just folded it into a cone! I used super sticky tape to hold the cone closed once I folded it around. I added a punched scalloped circle, a diecut from the Crate Paper collection and some coordinating ribbon to round out the cone. This one was filled with caramel and chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels (say that 5 times fast!!) and this next one was filled with homeade caramel corn.


I heard they were a big hit with the teachers! So, it doesn't take much to make somebody feel special. And it didn't take much time to make these, either. It's a win-win situation!


Hope you are all having a great weekend. Are you running around doing last minute holiday stuff?? My hubbie and I are relaxing in Vegas this weekend...without the kids. WooHoo!! It's my hubbie's 'unofficial' high school reunion and we are taking advantage of some time with adults. I know, it's a really bad weekend to be away...so close to the holidays. But i'll take it. Ha ha!!

Thanks for stopping by!
