Teachers Xmas Gifts 2012

Hi Everyone, 
I wanted to share some gifts I just put together this week.  
Every year I buy a little something for my kids teachers.  Either an ornament, gift cards or just a simple Christmas cards from my kids. 
This year I had a fabulous idea to give Xmas mugs and stuff them with Hot Chocolate mix, marshmallows, candy cane and a Starbucks gift card.  I had mentioned this idea to another mother and she implied that it was a bad idea to give a teacher mugs these days.  First, I was hurt to think that this was a terrible idea but as I thought about it she made perfect sense.  A teacher that has been teaching awhile could have collected many many mugs throughout her career so I had to think of another vessel to put these goodies in.  

I saw Robyn from Injoystampin on Youtube show this idea on her channel.  I have also seen Jo from Paperdrama on Youtube also showed this idea as well.  So, I thought it would be perfect to create.  

Here it is:

These were so simple to make and I hope they enjoy them. 

I ran out to 711 to snatch a few coffee sleeves to alter.  I used more of my Authentic Festive 12x12 paper that I just love so much.  Added some natural looking ric rac trim that I got from Joanns.  I had a few more of those snowflake buttons and added a bling in the center.  I found some gingerbread tags from target and viola done.  In the packets I added  Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate pack, packet of marshmallows, two Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Squares (Mm new addiction).  Yumm!

So, I know I haven't made a video in a long time but I have been creating here and there.  
I just don't have time to make a video lately.  
Hopefully, I will be back in motion in the new year. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  Have a fabulous weekend.

Well, at first I was thinking that it really wasn't very nice of the other woman to put a damper on your idea! I mean...if you felt led to include a mug with the gift...who was she to suggest you shouldn't? However, if her comment led you to create these sweet little packages then it's a very good thing! lol You had to think creatively and it worked beautifully! They're going to love them! :o)
