first day of school gifts. we heart teachers.

Brace yourself. It’s the first day of school. Yikes! It’s probably the teacher side of me, but I love to acknowledge teachers on their first day of school. It doesn’t need to be anything huge, just a little something to let them know I’ve got their back.

Well, here’s an idea for you. Simple. Sweet. Perfect.  Oh, and did I mention it won’t break the bank? A few dollars and cute little gift for a teacher you know, or will get to know.

The task is simple and will take you a little less than five minutes to get er’ done, or a little bit more if you decide to tackle a painting project in the process. You can thank me later.

{you will need}
hole punch
thick paper
mix it up printable template
spoons or a whisk
tea towel
twine or ribbon

{your task}

step 1. print the ‘mix it up’ template by clicking {here}.

step 2. cut the gift tags out of the attached template.

step 3. have your kiddo write their name, or not. up to you.

step 4. hole punch the top.

step 5. wrap some twine around a tea towel and a spoon. look at it and smile.

step 6. {optional} I bought some cheap mixing spoons and painted the bottoms myself to match the tags. Totally not necessary, but a simple way to personalize the spoons to the matching tea towel.

The template is {free} and just for YOU. It’s as easy as copy, print, cut. And, pretty gosh darn cute.  What color will you pick?
