Back 2 School

Since I can't volunteer at school during the day, I try to treat the teachers with crafted items to help make their day better. Every year at the end of school I would give the teacher a jar with their favorite snack. So it dawned on me, that I should give it at the beginning of the year and make sure it stays stocked throughout the year.
I found these jars at Dollar Tree for $2 and put in the teacher's favorite salty snack. I used a white gel pen to hand write teacher, the teacher last names and notes on each piece.
I found these cute containers at Target in the Dollar spot and they were 50% off! Love a good deal! Here I just wrapped cardstock and patterned paper around the middle, die cut a Nestie circle for the lid and some nestie stars for the tag, added an eyelet and tied to the container with PTI twine.
Lastly are some notepads and pens. I had some mini-legal pad cut in half vertically and then create a cute wrap around holder with a matching pen. It couldn't be a back to school post with out a picture of the kids!
