Mint to Teach – Teacher Appreciation Week 2011

Teacher Appreciation week is HERE!!  My favorite week. Here is one of the projects my kids are giving their teachers this week.

I used plastic test tubes and mint candies.

I already know I am going to get questions about where I got my test tubes. HAVE NO FEAR!! I will show you where I purchased mine. They are PLASTIC.

I tied on a cute tag with twine and I used a 2 1/2 inch circle punch – Uchida Clever Lever Mega Craft Punch, Circle For the tags. Make it easier on myself but you can cut it out by hand as well.

I simply wrapped the bakers twine around a few times to give it a good tight fit, to keep it from slipping off the test tube and tied on a fun tag that I personalized.

My basket of tubes ready for all the teachers and specialists that work with my kids. 🙂  We have interpreters and speech teachers too we don’t want to forget 🙂

Here is the tag that I used. (minus the peronlization )

    These are too cute! Perhaps if you can’t purchase the tubes you could simply wrap the Tic Tac box with a decorative paper and attach the tag….thanks for sharing!
