Teacher gifts




This year, I decided I needed to scale back on the number of cards I make for our 'past' teachers. Time has run out on me this year unfortunately. Heck, with 4 kids, I'm finding time slips away now faster than ever. So, I decided to get crafty! Past teachers will still get gifts, just on a smaller scale.

First, I took a 4 ounce pop top can of fruit I use for the girls lunches and opened the can from the BOTTOM using a can opener.

Then, after draining the can and washing it, I filled it with Rolos and Kisses.

I used Liquid Glass to seal the bottom back to the can.

Cut a strip of PP to replace the label.

Decorate and voila! You have a cute little can of chocolate...and a surprise for the teacher when she pops the lid open!

you are a crafty genius! I LOVE THOSE!! They are so cute and fun, I'm sure the teachers are just going to love them!

I think I just might buy some fruit so I can make some myself. I'm going to have to get one of those fancy can openers too...I'm still opening can old-school style where you can cut your finger off when you pull the lid off!
