For most schools around the country, teacher appreciation week is the first week of May. I was totally expecting our school to be the same, but yesterday my kids brought home a note that said teacher appreciation week is being celebrated next week. What?!? So today, I thought I would share this quick and easy idea I put together. It was easy to make and can really be done with any container. Plus, you can put anything inside you think the teacher would enjoy.

Here’s what I used:
– Plastic container (I found mine at Dollar Tree)
– Transfer Tape
– Treats, Teacher Supplies, Gift Cards (anything a teacher would like)
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Cut File (see link below)
Here is what I did:
I found these cute green plastic bins at the dollar store. The green color made me think of apples so I created this fun teacher subway art to add to the bin.
I used my electronic cutter to cut out some red, brown, and green vinyl. After the vinyl was cut, I weeded away the excess and used transfer tape to apply the vinyl to the bin.
Then, I filled it with treats in red and green packaging (to go with the apple theme) and wrapped it all up in cello wrap. I printed out a tag that says “It’s been such a TREAT to have you as my teacher!”
This would also make a great end of year teacher gift!
