Teacher Gifts

The last day of school is quickly approaching for my big girl, but my little petunia had her last day yesterday.
She was excited for a fun day, but seems to be even more excited to stay with me for the summer!
That sure puts a smile on my face and makes me feel loved.  It should be a fun summer, we have lots of ideas for things to fill our days.

I made up little goodie bags for her teachers at school.  I have been wanting to make these key fobs for a while and finally did a search on Etsy to find the supplies.  I ordered them from here.

There are directions included with the supplies that I ordered.  I think they turned out great!  I've even sold quite a few, so I will be ordering more supplies soon!  If you don't want to make your own, let me know, I can do a listing in my etsy shop.

I also found a tutorial for some homemade sugar scrub for your hands on another blog.  I am so sorry, I can't remember where I saw it, so if you are the one who did it, let me know so I can give you credit!!!

Anyway, I got these jars at WalMart, as recommended by said blogger, fill about 3/4 of the way with sugar, add soap, (I like to use Method hand get) and I put a tablespoon of olive oil as well.  Stir it up, add some ribbon and a tag and Voila!!   A nice teacher gift!!
