The end of the school year is upon us and the craziness has begun. Class picnics, field trips, field days, parties, teacher gifts and class gifts. I think the schools create the parental chaos on purpose. Because like right now, I am in a bit of a panic over having three kids to entertain all day long, every day for an entire summer and that whole going to school year around starts looking better and better to me. But with all these end of the year activities and reports, projects etc.I suddenly just want it to be over. I'm thinking "Fine I'll take responsibility for my own kids for a couple of months. Just give me a break! Sheesh!"
Now that I have gotten completely off track. Let me share with you this super cute inexpensive class gift idea I found at Hot Mama Makeovers.
The Kool-Aid was on sale at the grocery store and Joann's had the straws marked 40% off. Now I just needed some festive packaging. I went into my scrapbooking supplies and found some fun patterned cardstock and my handy dandy Cricut machine. My Kool friend K loaned me her Bags Tags Boxes and More cartridge and I set to work.
I cut "tag pocket 1" (tgpkt>1) with window at 9". You only get two per 12x12 page. Save the window cutout for gift tags. I paired the striped tag with the polka dot pocket and vice-versa. Marks are cut into the paper to show you where to fold it.
I used adhesive strips to close the back flaps. If you use a lighter weight paper without the texture, I think any type of adhesive would work. Then you just slide in the Kool-Aid.
and to me keeping my KOOL with three wild kids running amok!
