Teacher Survival Kit teacher gift


Valentine's Day was practically a non-event due to all of the snow, snow, and more snow. There was no school on Friday, February 5 - Monday February 15th (President's Day). As a result I did not get to use the sweet treat cups and the Valentine's M&Ms I had originally planned. Next year! I opted for an idea by Jana, my DT sister, posted here.

I purchased this DMC floss organizer (could be used for brads, beads, etc.) and some Easter candy and filled the container for all of my daughters' 2nd grade teachers to share.

The paper is by Abbey Road, a freebie that came with my latest order to eclectic paperie. The woolie butterfly and button are BasicGrey the flowers are K&Co. and prima. I cut the letters using my Pazzles and Bazzill card stock.

Before I gave it to them I kept opening and closing the lid just to smell it :)

That's a "survival kit" for anyone of us...lol Sorry to hear about the "snow"...Tim lives in Pittsburgh PA now and he "has had enough of it already"...lol Cortney was living there last year and they moved to LA before Christmas so they got out just in time. Tim didn't even own a shovel or boots...so I asked him if he was using "plastic bags" cause if he was...I was gonna call im a "redneck"! Have a great weekend it looks like spring is finally arriving and we turn the clocks ahead on Sat...yeah!

June, What a fun treat! I bet any teacher would love to receive a box like this. I would be afraid that the candy would be gone before it was given away.

♥♥♥ OMG!!! ♥♥♥ miss june!!! this is sooooooooooooo flippin' brilliant, i cannot believe it! it makes me laugh AND want to make these for...well, EVERYONE...and it totally makes me want some CANDY but we won't dwell on that, eh?!

(i especially like how the candy is perfectly organized inside the little squares...the m&m's are in a sort of checkerboard, the mini pb cups are side-by-side, the small candy bars stand at attention...you make my monkish heart skip a beat, missus!!!) :)
