Mint to Be a Teacher {teacher appreciation gift idea}

I am part of the PTA at our elementary school, and this week is the big daddy of weeks for teacher appreciation. I’ve showed you bus driver gifts, principal gifts, and even the gifts we made for the aids and secretaries (all with free printables). But today, I’m going to share my teacher appreciation gift idea for the teachers at our school… and I’m offering a free printable too!

 This is has got to be one of the easiest and cutest ideas I’ve seen for a teacher appreciation gift.

You’ll need:

Altoids mints
Free Printable Download: full sheet  or  single 4x6
Plain paper or cardstock to wrap around the mints (mine were 2 x 8.5 inches)

These are pretty self explanatory. Just take your paper strips, and wrap them around the altoids tin. Glue the ends of the paper strip. Then cut out your tags and stick them right on top. If you want, you can add a gift card too.

Since I had to make 30 of these, and I didn’t want to cut them all by hand, I actually cut these out with my Silhouette Cameo. If you happen to have a Silhouette Cameo, you can download this print and cut file by cicking {here}.
