Vinyl for your Teachers

It's that time of year again!! I can't believe how quickly the school year passes.
Right now is the time to be thinking of thank you gifts for your teachers.
Here are just a few ideas of what you could do.
 All are inexpensive & easy to put together.
 I found these ADORABLE apples filled with anti-bac hand sanitizer at Bath & Body Works back in the fall. I gave them to my boys teachers as a back to school gift. Just add your teachers name in vinyl and Viola you have a totally cute, personalized present. Plus it's practical.
{Teacher's name in vinyl just $2.50 each}
One of our most popular items we sell at the end of the school year is the vinyl for a candle. You can find a white large pillar candle just about anywhere and grab the vinyl from us. Wrap in cellophane and again totally cute & easy teacher gift.

Bottom layer: TEACHER
Top layer: "Touches a Life Forever"
If the teacher vinyl for the candle seems to "teacher-ish" or impractical...
(I am all about practical gifts)
you could also just do the teacher's last name in vinyl on a candle for a gift that he/she could take home with them.

Found this online at
SO darling. I just LOVE this gift idea!!
You just buy a small cracker jar
(they run between $2.50-$4.50 @ Walmart depending on the size you get),
 pack of pencils, vinyl from us, & tie it all up with a ribbon.
{vinyl for cracker jars $3.50 each} 
In these 2 pictures, I have a friend who bought some cute metal boxes (which can be found at Michaels as well as Hobby Lobby) & then had me do names and/or initals in vinyl to decorate the outside of the box.
In the top picture the box was filled with a everything your teacher would need to give herself a pedicure. Flip flops, lotion, foot scrubber, maincure set.
In the bottom pic, the box is filled with thank you notes from all the kids in the class. How sweet is that!!

OK...These apple cookie jars are hard to find. I found them @ Walmart a couple years ago on Christmas clearance so I grabbed them and stored them till the end of school. Then finished them off with the teacher's names. These are still my favorite gift I have ever made for my boys teacher's and they just LOVED them.
