Happy Summer Teacher Gift

Today is the last day of school 
here in Newfoundland.
The kids are gone, gifts in hand for
their teachers.

I’ve seen this idea floating 
around for a while now and 
I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl.

I love these insulated cups, 
they are perfect
for drinks and smoothies.

I filled the cups with single
serving packets of

I decorated the cups with fantastic 
paper from My Minds Eye.
So fitting with the alphabet and all!

I am in love with accordion flowers,
a little piece of paper can make
such a huge statement!

I embellished with a few
school themed chip board 
pieces to finish the look!

  4. Practical and cute. Found your post at Stuff and Nonsense. Stop over and see me at Quirky Vistas.

  5. Lovely gift! I really <3 those Accordion flowers, too!
    Thanks so much for linking up at I Gotta Create! <3 Christina

  6. These are really cute! Great idea!

  7. This is GORGEOUS! I love it!! ;) You will have to teach me how to make those pretty rosettes…I’m not so great at them yet!

  8. Really cute. I have seen decorated cups at a local store. They were really blinged out, and they wanted $40 something dollars for them. Wos, a bit pricey don’t you think? I love rosettes also. They take a little time to make, but worth every minute. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  9. Great idea – so perfect!
    Thanks for linking up!

  10. Totally cute teacher gift! I’m pinning this today. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday last week. I can’t wait to see what you link up this week. Have a wonderful weekend.


  11. Came over from Beez’s to see your project. If I were still teaching, I would love receiving this end-of-year gift. Thoughtful, cute, and useful!

  14. Love love love your idea so much better than mine! I threw a quick Silhouette vinyl cutout on ours… Thanks for sharing today with tip toe thru tuesday! So much fun… I’ll be back to link up to your summer fun, soon!

  15. That is a great idea! As a teacher, I am grateful for all the gifts the kids give me, but I really don’t need another ceramic apple or alphabet item. I love it when I get something I can actually use! Again, great idea.

  16. This is such a pretty gift idea, I love all of the little details. Thank you for linking up to Show Me What You Got Tuesday’s @ ODH via: http://ourdelightfulhome.blogspot.com/2012/06/live-show-me-what-you-got-tuesdays.html
