"Because of you, I'm a Smartie Valentine's Day Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

"Because of you, I'm a real Smartie"  is a fun sentiment for a tag for a Valentine Teacher Appreciation gift.  You can put them on anything..... a jar of Smarties, a box of Smarties, a cellophane bag filled with Smarties.....or on cupcakes or even a box of chocolates.....anything you can imagine.  

 You could also use these tags as cupcake toppers since there are three different sizes.  Give teacher some of your yummy cupcakes with a cute cupcake topper.

The tags come in three sizes:  3" rounds, 2.5" rounds and 2" rounds. 
We used the following paper punch sizes on the tags:

 3.5" scalloped paper punch on the 3" tag
3" round punch on the 2.5" tags 
2 ¼" punch on the 2" tags. 

You can also punch them out using a 3", a 2.5" and a 2" paper punch. There just wouldn't be a white border around each tag if you do. 
  Here's a small cellophane bag filled with three Smarties and tag attached. You could put this on your gift for teacher too.

Smarties can be found at most grocery stores and candy stores in large bags this time of year.

Valentine's Day Treat-Cupid's Arrow - Fun for a Classroom Treat-Super Simple!

Been racking your brain for a unique gift for the kid's to take to school on Valentine's Day?  Well, here's your answer! It's a Cupid's Arrow that can be made out of a candy stick or a pencil.....Sugar-Free arrow or Candy Arrow--You decide. The pencils and candy sticks are so inexpensive that you won't mind including two for every child. I think this would be a treat that the kids would be excited to take to school. 

The Dollar Store is a great source for Valentine themed pencils. I think there is 12 pencils in a package for $1.00 They may have the candy sticks too.

If you aren't crafty don't worry, they are so simple to put together, even the kids could help and you'll be so pleased with the end product!

Valentine's Day Heart Treat Boxes-Classroom Treat, Teacher Appreciation, Party Favor

  We wanted to design something for the kids to take to school on Valentine's Day for their classmates. This heart box is just the right size for a Little Debbie cake, some fun size candy bars, a bag of Hershey Kisses, Nuggets  or any of the smaller treats.  The hearts measure 4" tall and 3.5" at the widest part of the heart. I think the kids will really love taking these to their friends at school.

This is a kit that you assemble. So simple! The heart box comes already cut out, complete with score lines so you can bend the flaps and glue. Before you glue the box thread the ribbon through the silver metal eyelets on both side of the box. Then glue the box. The arrow and circle are glued to the box next. That's all there is to it-Super Simple.

The box will already come with an eyelet on each side of the upper part of the heart to make a strong point to thread the ribbon through. (box won't tear when held by the ribbon handle)

Just put your favorite treat inside and you're done. Such a cute and treat for family, friends and classmates on Valentine's Day.

Valentines party favor
Teacher Appreciation
Treat for family and friends
Treat from Teacher
Classroom treat for kids to take on Valentine's Day
Baby Shower party favor (if during the month of February
Sweetheart treat

We put these Little Debbie snacks inside the heart boxes. The red iced brownie comes in individual packages. The white heart cake and the chocolate heart cake come 2 to a package. I took them out of the package and wrapped them individually in plastic wrap.  You could put lots of other treats inside the heart box

Little Debbie snacks
Hershey Kisses
Hershey Nuggets
M&M's in bag or fun size pkg
Conversation Hearts
Red hot hearts
Cinnamon bears
Miniature Kit Kats
Miniature Peppermint Patties
and so many other treats!

Valentine's Day Gift Tags for Teacher Appreciation, Classmates and Sweethearts

If you have children in school then you're probably starting to think about what to get the kid's teacher for Valentine's Day. Its the perfect time to show some "LOVE" to your children's
teachers. Take a deep breath and will  be easy!

We used both tags on the gifts shown above but you can use this tag alone and for any gift.  Rounding the corners is optional. We added it to a small cellophane bag of kisses. Perfect sized gift for your kid's CLASSMATES.  The kids could write their names on the back of the tag.

Here's the same tag only we cut another piece out of the red paper (included) and just a little larger than the tag for a nice backer.

 The round tags come in 3 sizes, 3"  2.5" and 2"   The square tags come in three sizes too. We are also including a 8.5x11 size digital paper in pink and in red that match the colors of the tags so you can use that to cut out your backing piece for the tags.

If you would rather use other scrapbook paper behind the tags they will look great too. Above are just some samples of our favorite paper backing the tags.

 Here's the tag using the pink paper behind the tag
