handmade Teacher Appreciation gifts

Happy Teacher Appreciation Day & week to all the teachers out there!  Thank you for all your hard work!

For Teacher Appreciation day, I made some handmade thank you cards for my daughters’ teachers, with a little sweetness added…  I thought I would share what I made (& bought).

For my younger daughter’s preschool teacher, I made 6 variations of this thank you card.  We also threw in a Lindt hazelnut chocolate bar.  Since I was buying, I bought one of these for myself, and let me tell you, it will take every fiber of willpower you have not to eat the entire bar in one sitting!  HA!
