Today is the first day of school for my kiddos and they are so excited! I have had their teacher gift planned for a couple weeks but kept thinking I had plenty of time to do it. So over the weekend I decided it was time to get my hieney in gear and actually make them.
If school starts soon for your little one, this gift can quickly be duplicated as a last minute gift without the vinyl and I am sure any teacher would be happy to receive it.
I got the cups from the Dollar Tree. I love these types of straw cups and have several between work and home. So I was thrilled when I saw them at the Dollar Store.
For the inside of the cups I bought some single serve drink packets and some candy bars. It worked out great because I had 4 cups to fill so each cup got 5 drink packets and 3 mini candy bars.
I found a fun font for each Teacher's last name and cut it out of orange vinyl on my Silhouette.
Vinyl is so easy to use. After the name is cut, remove the extra and then use some transfer to tape to pick it up off of the vinyl backing sheet and onto the cup. Give it a good rub, remove the transfer tape and the vinyl sticks to the cup.
This cup is for Ms. Black. I think it looks awesome already!
I took a 3/4" circle punch and cut out several small circles from orange, red and blue vinyl and then applied those to the cup as well. Aren't they fun?!
I divided up the treats and added them to each cup.
I hope their teachers like them!
NOTE: You can't wash these cups in the dishwasher because the vinyl will come off but I think these cups are supposed to be hand washed anyways.
