i'm a smart cookie {end of year teacher gifts}

i'm a smart cookie {end of year teacher gifts}

I was browsing Pinterest a little while back, trying to think of something simple I could do for all of the teachers. I came across some printable tags that read "thanks to you, i'm one smart cookie!"  And the tags were free printables.  But I decided to make my own because

1. I always like my life to be as hard as possible, and
2. challenge: accepted.  if i have the stamps, and i could possibly 
fathom recreating something with what i already own, 
i'm a gonna try.

So. A slew of lawn fawn products on my table and this is what I came up with.

I grabbed the "thanks" from a good apple, the "to you" and "i'm a" from check this out (i had to get creative there,) the cookies from cozy christmas and the letters to spell "smart cookie" from riley's abcs.

Whew.

Are you still with me? Allow me to distract you with cookies.

I hope the teachers will like them as much as Maia and I did. Between us, there may be a half-dozen missing. We didn't even offer any to the man who now works in the basement. ha. poor Amar.

I bought kraft boxes from the local Dollar Store and stamped the tops with a strip from schoolhouse backdrops. A little more custom looking that way.

We still have a full week of school left, so all of the cookies are in the freezer until then, but when I do get around to making the packages, they will look something like this:

Thanks for stopping by!

ps, if you want to go the easy route and print your own tags (pffft, i won't judge, but...) just find yourself on pinterest and do a search for "smart cookie tag" and you'll end up with a bunch of choices.
