Candy Bucket – Teacher Appreciation 2011

Candy bucket for the teacher is alot of fun. Found these cute buckets at my local craft store. Filled it with candy.

I also used my Silhouette Machine to cut out names of the teachers to put on the buckets. They were hard to see in the photos, but once the bucket was empty its perfect for teacher trinkets. 🙂

I then wrote a cute story to go with all the candy and candy bars I added inside. 🙂


Sorry for the bad photography. It was late at night the evening I was putting these together, and my lighting options were minimal and I was tired. But I think you get the jist of it.

The card says–

I SKORed big time, when I got you for my teacher. Don’t SNICKER…but I think you’re great!! Even when I acted a bit of an AIRHEAD or I tried to play a TWIX on you, you always made me feel like 100 GRAND! You brought me so much JOY this year when you taught me about WATCHAMACALLIT and how to write with my little BUTTERFINGERs. Thanks for helping me become such a SMARTIE!!You have been my LIFESAVER and I love you to PIECES!!


List of Candies you will need

100 Grand
Almond Joy
Reese’s Pieces
Hershey Kisses

I have included the card in case you want to cut it out. This was a large size card so I cut it out by hand. I printed it on my 110 lb card stock from my office supply store. I run it through my ink jet with no issues. 🙂

If you find these candies, you are welcome to the card. Hope it helps you.  What teacher doesn’t love chocolate candy?!?

    I believe it is a 1/2 of a gallon bucket. The full gallon size they sell at micheals and joanns. This was the smaller size one. 🙂 Hope that helps 🙂

    This is another cute idea! I love it! I find those little buckets are to find, but I’m sure a cute basket would work too. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    You could also put Hugs and Kisses at the end, and put the students name afterwards! Love the idea!!!
