We needed another fun Teacher Appreciation gift idea. We actually made this craft for the Secretaries at the school. Secretaries Day was April 25th. Did you remember? Secretaries need a little extra love too. They have to deal with all the yuck in a school. Don’t believe me? When a staff person thinks a child might have lice – guess who has to check? When a child throws up in the hall – guess who has to go check? When a child is naughty and gets sent to the office – guess who has to deal with them until the Principal is available? Yep… the secretaries. So we needed to give them a pick me up to.
I’m kind of in love with the whole recycled frappuccino bottle thing. We made some for Halloween and Valentine’s Day. So it was kind of calling to us. The best part? My co-worker gave me a ton of these bottles! I don’t drink the stuff. Blech! Coffee! But I love the bottles.
I wrapped the outside with some card stock. I just picked colors that would match the totally cool (and totally free) printables I printed off the internet. (Thank you Nothing But Country for these!!!)
I spray painted the lids too. To coordinated and all =o)
I cut out the tag with a circle cutter and then added a background color. Mod Podge that one and there you go. Easy as can be but so cute. Oh yeah, and fill ‘er full of Starbursts!
