For the love of Pinterest! {Meet the Teacher Gift Ideas}

I was a skeptic of Pinterest for a long time. Not sure why! But I've totally turned around now and love that it's my one stop place for inspiration for craft projects. After just a few minutes, I knew I wanted to do something like this for a beginning of the year gift for my daughter's kindergarten teacher. (They even provide a free file for you to download to make the tag!)
2 shopping trips later, this is what I came up with:
 The little monogram tag came 20 to a pack so I can use them all year....both the teacher's first AND last name start with B and so does my daughter's :-) So I will have no trouble using the tags. Since I am low on printer ink, I went with the tag and some mixed alphas to get this:
 The bucket is filled with Ghirardelli mint chocolate (on sale!), peppermints and mint gum. I personally do NOT like mint but I hope she will enjoy at least one of the three!

Next up... when I saw this, I knew I wanted to make a card that looks like this:

Yes, I had the exact papers and they were just scraps so it worked perfect for a card instead of the box!
My daughter wanted to help but I was being selfish, so I let her write a note to her teacher :)
I hope she likes them, I know I had lots of fun making them!

I absolutely adore your teacher gifts. I sent my girls' teachers a card and a few supplies. You're way better than I am. LOL I love Pinterest too. It's so inspirational!

Well, I would love it since I love mint :) Maybe I'll do this next year.. I'm going with something apple inspired this year.
