Valentine Gifts!

Please forgive me, I know this makes for two posts in one day.  However, I wanted to share something with you.  So, hopefully you won't be too upset with me for a double post. 

I spent this afternoon putting together valentine gifts for my students and Little Peanut's teachers.  This year, I decided to give my kiddos a new box of crayons.  About this time of year, most of them have lost half of their original stash of colors.  So, here is what they will be getting on Thursday.

I think they turned out pretty cute!  I still have to write "From, Mrs. S" on them, but at least the bulk of the work is done.  To put this little gift together, I made some labels, printed/cut them out, attached them to the box with a mini-sized dot of glue, and tied some ribbon around the box.  Easy peasy! 

If you like the crayon label and would like a copy, click on the image to get the file from Google Docs. 

For Little Peanut's teachers, I went with an idea I saw on Pinterest.  What teacher wouldn't love this as a gift?  (Well, maybe not all, but I sure would!)

The pin I saw (I can't link it right now because every time I try to access my boards on Pinterest I get an error message...grrr) led me to Lauren McKinsey.  Oh. My. Word.  Talk about printables galore at super reasonable prices!  Her stuff is absolutely adorable!!!  Case in point, the label above, which I bought for super cheap!  To see this label, and another variation of it, just click the brownie picture above and it will take you to her site.  

What kinds of gifts are you planning on giving this week?
