Teacher Gifts

Last year Kristy and I made these for Christmas to give all of our kids’ teachers.  I saw them on the teachers desks this year and couldn’t resist doing them again.

Teacher Gift

I bought the jar at Wal-Mart and pencils from the Dollar Store.  Last year some of the teacher’s names were Constantino and Schmuttermair – that was hard to fit with the vinyl!!!  Rebecca has Miss Smith and Kaylee had her last year so she ALREADY has one, BUT she is getting married over Christmas break so I will have to steal it off her desk to put her new married name on it!

Anyway, they are fun and quick to make.  I’m sad that you couldn’t make them with me again this year Kristy!!!
