A Fun Student Gift Idea

Hey everyone!  This week, I will be passing out small gifts to my students and thought I would share the idea with you.  It turned out really cute and wasn't all that difficult to put together.  I found a similar idea on Pinterest and made it my own.

Ta da!
 

Here's what I did.  First, I cut out the snow caps using my ancient Cricut.  Ancient, as in it's one of the first models they made.  I'm not cool enough to own a Silhouette Cameo-ha!



The snow cap can be found on the Simply Charmed cartridge set.  If you don't have a cutting machine, you could always just fold over the top of the bag, staple it in place, and glue a bow on top of the staple.


Next, I placed a packet of hot cocoa, some marshmallows, and a small card into a cellophane treat sack (you can find these at Michael's, Walmart, and even Target).

Click the image above to grab a copy of the cards from Google Docs (remember, I've already shared it with you, simply select download from the "File" menu).

After that, I folded the top of the bag down and stapled the snow cap to hide the fold and to serve as a bag topper.  Again, if you don't have a Cricut, skip the bag topper idea, it will still be a huge hit with your kiddos!


Are you planning to do students gifts this year?

  1. Those turned out really cute, Aimee! I think I have one of the first models of the Cricut too in my pod. I have no clue how to use it...I always make everyone else do it. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Lol!

  2. Drat! I already took care of the gift for the children and I LOVE this. I think I will modify it slightly and use it for Valentine's Day. They look great!
