Teachers vs Cootie Monsters!


Happy Wednesday!  Today over at Decorate to Celebrate do you have a fun challenge that will help bring smiles to educators!  It is a teacher gifts or classroom party challenge.  How perfect is that?  It is getting to the end of the year and many of you all will have to start coming up with ideas for your kiddo’s teacher and class room celebrations!  The design team has a ton of amazing inspirations to glean ideas from!


Here is what I cooked up.  I am a 100% germ-a-phobe.  I think being so sick for all nine months during both of my pregnancies made it worse, so the thought of the stomach flu hitting our house just sends me into the fetal position.  Having teacher friends that teach in elementary school settings, they are about as bad as me, so I decided that any teacher of small children would love to receive this instead of the traditional apple.


This was actually so easy to make! I cut down some designer paper from Stampin’ Up and used my ATG to adhere it to the bottle of hand sanitizer.  I then took some ribbon and wrapped it around the bottle and used a Glue Dot to fasten it to the front of the bottle. Now for the fun part!  Heading over the the Silhouette Store, I found this Lori Whitlock tag (Circle Banner) with the pennants on it.  I changed up the size to be around 3 inches around and changed up the colors of the tag layers and pennants.  I then added the little saying I made up using  a font I found at the Silhouette Store.  I grouped together everything and printed out on my color printer and then cut out on my Silhouette!


How easy was that? You could whip out a ton of these babies in no time flat!  Head over to DTC and check out the inspirations and LINK up your own teacher gift/class room party idea!  I can’t wait to see what you have cooked up!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “keeping the cootie monsters at bay” pie with me!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
