Teacher Appreciation

One week left of school around here!  This week we needed a little thank you gift for the piano teacher, Art Class teacher and Video Club teacher. (Can you believe my daughter gets to go to a Video Club class once a week before school? She's learning how to film, direct, edit, etc. So fun!) 

I've shared before how I love to give Bath & Body Works soap. 
Remember St. Patrick's Day? Click here for post.

Everyone loves a gift they can use. I stock up on soap when they have specials and coupons throughout the year.  The day after Thanksgiving is always a great sale day!  When I saw these Mango Mandarin and Orange Sapphire soaps on sale, I snatched them up! 

Using orange and white cardstock I cut out a simple tag shape.  The 'orange' letters were punched from my QuicKutz tool.  You could also use orange letter stickers as well.  I always make my kids write their own thank yous!  I tied the tag onto the bottle with orange ribbon from my stash.

'Orange' you the best?!  Yes!
What a fast, simple and sweet thank you!
Other 'orange' ideas to use this saying with:
-a bowl, box or basket full of oranges or satsumas
-a bag of orange slices candies
-orange soda or orange sports drinks
-a basket filled with fun orange foods:  Cheetos, Goldfish crackers, cheeses, etc.
-a basket filled with orange colored things:  orange notepad, orange pen, orange paperclips, etc.
'Orange' you glad it's summer?!  I am!

  6. These are wonderful gift ideas and tags! Would love for you to stop by and share them at the Tuesday To Do Party!

  7. What a sweet gift ... I'm definitely using that idea. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Very cute idea! Thanks for sharing:)

  9. Love these ideas!

    What do you consider the best price for those soaps? I just placed an order- the special was 7/$20 and with a $25 order, code for $1 shipping (to get to $25 added 5 PocketBacs on a $1 each wyb 5,so saved $5.99 in s/h so it was like getting those for free)but I was wondering if you or anyone else knows when they go cheaper so I could stock up.

  10. Dee- I think you found an incredible price! There was a sale(2)Black Fridays ago (yes, 2 years ago--I remember!) when they were 4/$10...but I haven't seen them that cheap since! What a deal you scored! Enjoy!
