Monogrammed Teacher Gifts...

School's out for Summmmmmmmmmer!! Our last day is tomorrow here in NC and myself and the kids can hardly wait! We have several family trips planned this Summer and a wedding so it will be packed. I wanted a fun way to say thank you to the teachers...besides the candy and bath stuff that teachers are probably overloaded I right??? And even though I said I'm no fan of decorating with apples, I hope I have redeemed myself here by throwing in a Staples gc...something they can REALLY use! There are many ideas with clear cups and these drink mix combos...I first saw these on my crafty friend, LYNN's, blog! You can also check out Jen's HERE, and Susan's their use of the ice cubes...ADORABLE!I trekked to Wal-Mart and Target in search of plastic cups. Then I remembered my sweet friend Stephanie(Sweet Southern Designs) does monogrammed cups. I have bought a few of these as gifts in the past, and I'm amazed for being clear, they really do keep your drink COLD for several hours! SCORE! I simply filled them with Lipton Tea and several types of Crystal Light. To keep the packets from moving around, I added some shredded kraft paper in the middle.Simple Apple gift card holder. I like this new shape and it fits the card very snug so it doesn't slip out. Apple set is from PTI.

And of course, she really should have something 'stronger' in her glass...Ms. Denise, the bus driver ;) It's been a great school year! I always get a little anxious about the year ending because it means my babies are getting older. Both of my girls will be in school full time this Fall and I'm just not sure I'm ready for that ; (.
