For some BERRY sweet people...water bottle tags

  I try to come up with teacher gifts for holidays, teacher appreciation, and end-of-year and I don't repeat the same gifts because my twin girls have had some of the same teachers since pre-school.  For the end-of-year gifts I decided to make water bottle tags.  I attached 3 powdered flavor mixes with glue dots to my card stock tag.  I created the tag from my Cricut Imagine, stamped a sentiment, and added a Bazzill jumbo brad.

  These are a few of their fifth grade Autism teachers, who have known Julia and Kathryn since my twins were four years old:
 (5th grade promotion)

  Oof!  I am fighting back tears over this picture.  We will miss the wonderful staff more than they can imagine.  I honestly feel like I have the two most-loved girls in the world.  Everyone at this elementary school has embraced my daughters.  And not just the teachers!  There are so many typical children that have taken the time to enter Julia or Kathryn's "world" by doing the things my children enjoy.

Here are my girls on the last day of elementary school (last Thursday):

And the rest of the water bottle tags I made:
  Happy Wednesday!

I love to see what you make for teachers each year, June (hoping for inspiration for my boy's teacher!!). Can't believe how big Kathryn and Julia are getting. The educational system is completely different here so I'm just guessing is it middle school they move on to now?
