"It's been a sweet year" Teacher Appreciation Printable

Posted by  ·  April 17, 2014  ·  Last Updated: April 17, 2014

Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week in May. Through all of April I am excited to share some amazing ideas from some of the most wonderful bloggers for my Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas series! It’s a great month! You will be totally prepared with ideas to thank your teachers!

Hi, everyone! It’s Amy from Positively Splendid here, and I am so excited to be back at Cindy’s place today for her annual Teacher Appreciation series! I always get so many fun ideas from this lineup each year. I am delighted to be here today to share some sweet little gift tags to make any teacher feel extra special.

Now that my kids are getting older, I absolutely love enlisting their help to put together something nice for their teachers as the year is drawing to a close. Both of my oldest children absolutely love to bake, and I have found preparing a yummy homemade treat to be a hit with both my children and their teachers! This year, we are making my scrumptious and oh-so-easy honey bun mini loaves, packaged in disposable mini loaf pans. (Surely I am not to only one totally charmed by anything that comes in a miniature size!)

These little pans make toting around and delivering the treats a breeze, and to give them some festive flair, I created some cute “sweet-themed” gift tags for an extra-special touch! The tags read: “It’s been a sweet year!” I used baker’s twine to tie the tag onto the pans, and I also included a napkin and a fork so they can dig right in.

These tags are absolutely perfect for packaging any sweet treat you can imagine: homemade goodies like these mini loaves, store-bought cupcakes, or even a mason jar filled with your teacher’s favorite candy.
