{mint} to be...

This week is teacher appreciation week....plus it is close to the end of school.  {Little Bit only has 1 more week!}  So what better time to give your teacher a little something to let them know how much they are appreciated.  

I have seen several wonderful gift ideas on Pinterest.  My favorite idea was to give a reusable cup filled with some goodies!  In my head I was thinking summer essentials.  I always have to have my chapstick and hand sanitizer, plus who doesn't love a good nail color and some chocolate! 

When I found the Nivea mint & minerals chapstick and the nectarine mint hand sanitizer, I decided on my "mint" theme.  Then I added the mint colored nail polish and the Andes mints to finish it off!

I made this cute little banner by printing the saying in Word and then cutting it out in the banner shape.  Then I mounted it on some mint colored cardstock and added some slits to thread on the straw.

Here is the finished gift....I just love how it came together!  {Little Bit's teacher did too!}

What fun gifts did you come up with for your kids' teachers?
