Project Pinterest Link-up: Starbucks Teacher Gift





Today I'm linking up with AP over at ILYMTC for her new "Project Pinterest" link up!



I thought I'd share the first day of school teacher gifts that I made last week!


A long, long time ago I cam across this on pinterest and thought it would be so cute to gift a starbucks giftcard this way.




So (the night before school started) I stopped by Starbucks and picked up two gift cards, one for each of T's teachers and asked the barista for a cup, domed lid and a bag (for T to carry them in).

The barista was more than happy to hand them over and then we had a 10 minute convo about how obsessed we are with Pinterest!

I created the tags on PicMonkey, printed them on cardstock at Office Max (glossy) and then used my
2" punch from Michael's to cut them out. Easy Peasy!

I filled the cups with brown tissue paper on the bottom, stuck the gift card and the straw in, then added the white paper.

They were a huge hit and such a fun and easy project!!





You can follow me on Pinterest here and make sure you head on over to AP's blog and link up your Pinterest Project of the week!!!

So fun! I wish I had thought to do something for Jax's teachers. I've gotta get the hang of this kid-in-school mom thing! I forget to do fun things like that. Gotta love Pinterest. Good job Lis!
