It's all in the packaging...

It's the most wonderful time of the year.... one more week of school from where I sit, and I am sure most of you are about 1-3 weeks 'til the end too. So it's that time when we want to let the teachers know how much we appreciate them and give 'em a little something. Typically we turn to treats, no? So instead of a Styrofoam plate or a Ziploc baggie with some homemade (or store bought) goodies, why not do something SO simple that looks extra special? After all most of the time hand cooked and hand made gifts carry the most meaning for the fewest dollars.

I started with a 4 by 6 cello bag and used it as a template to cut my rice krispie treat to size (note, because the treats are thick you will need to cut it about an inch smaller than the actual bag).
I stuffed the treat inside, folded the top over, stuck a sticker that matched the thank you card I made.

and voila. A simple, inexpensive, but absolutely darling way to say, "thank you". You could use this idea for a neighbor gift or a gift for visiting teaching wherein you could include the message and a goodie... the possibilities are endless. If you don't like, are opposed to, or didn't make Rice Krispie treats, stick a couple of cookies or some candy inside instead.
