Back to school time is upon us again! Or maybe I should say finally upon us again! A four month long summer break seems like forever to parents! I like to send a cute back to school gift for Jax’s teachers each year. Nothing expensive and nothing that will clutter up the teachers’ classrooms or homes. My mom and grandmother were teachers, so I know getting 500 apple gifts each year can add up over twenty years, ha! So I usually go with something they can use, then throw away when it’s gone.
This year my daughter & I were out shopping & we stopped in Bath & Body Works. They had the cutest “kiddie” looking hand soaps. I had a plain apple one in my hand, but then I saw these. Too cute! The one we chose had little leaves fluttering down the label with little smiley faces on them. It says, “Don’t Stop Be-leafing.” Perfect.
To personalize it a little, I created a gift tag for it. Of course I am sharing that free printable with you. You’re welcome my lovely readers! To create your own cute back to school gift for someone in your life, you’ll need:
- Cardstock paper in white or a light color of your choosing (I was out of white cardstock, so I used a light yellow. I would’ve preferred white.)
- Scissors and/or a die cutting machine
- Baker’s twine or thin ribbon
- hole punch
- Download of my printable
Click here to download the printable. Next you can just print it & cut it by hand, or you can upload the printable into your die cutting machine software & use the “print then cut” option. I did the latter, just so it would be cut even. You don’t have to do that at all. I’m a bit of a perfectionist on some things. My husband either laughs or rolls his eyes & says, “Babe. It’s fine. You don’t have to do all that!” When your gift tag is cut, punch a hole & use the baker’s twine or ribbon to attach it to the soap and tie it in a bow.
Now, you’re done! Easy peasy! I hope all of you parents out there can get a bit of rest before the bus rolls back around in the afternoon! Please share this post with all of your parent or grandparent friends out there. We want to bless these teachers for taking our kiddos off our hands for a few hours!
At the end of the year I also created this printable to add to a cute flower pot with flower seeds and flowers, real or paper. Hop over to that post to print this gift tag.
