Well, wouldn't you know it, my stamps came a day earlier than expected (yesterday), which was a great surprise because I SO wanted to create some First Day of School teacher gifts . . . because teachers have a hard job . . . maybe even harder than moms sometimes.
SO, I decided this year to try to make monthly teacher gifts for my kids teachers to help them feel appreciated! We will see if I am able to keep up with that plan . . .
Here are the little chocolate boxes I made for Monday. I used scraps from my drawers. The little boxes I found at Target dollar spot today while I was there shopping with the fab 4 (which not even joking is SO CRAZY). Really, I am lucky I survived. I seriously despise shopping with kids, everyone always looks at me like I am a freak show, and if I am completely honest, I kind of am . . . haha! We managed to get all the critical school supplies though, so except for back packs, we are set. I will work on finding some of those this weekend . . . any ideas on where to look? I am thinking Pottery Barn Kids maybe . . . our Target was out of stock of most of the cute ones already . . . hmmmm
Total cost of the project was like $4 . . . pretty good!
