Teacher Appreciation: U R Priceless!

We are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week at my kids' school this week! In addition to the students bringing in small gifts each day for their teachers, our PTC does our best to show the teachers and staff just how much we appreciate all their hard work to enrich and enhance the lives of our children.

Today, we gave each staff member a small treat...a 100 Grand bar! However, we all agreed that 100 Grand simply wasn't enough for those who give so much of their time and their hearts, so we added the tag that reads "U R Priceless".

These little candy bar wrappers were simple to whip up - and fun too!

Simply cut your desired paper to fit the specific candy bar you are using (be sure to allow a little overlap for adhesive). These wrappers used B&T papers that were cut to 6 1/2" x 4". I scored one long side of the B&T at 1/4" and folded the other edge to meet the score line. The 1 1/4" circle punch was perfect for punching the notch out of the top (be sure to do this before adhering the sides together unless you want the front and back notched out). Next, I added adhesive to the 1/4" flap and along the inside bottom edge and folded the wrapper to adhere. My paper crimper was getting a little lonely after sitting in the same spot for probably the last 6 years, so I pulled it out and gave it a workout - I'm not sure it shows so well in the picture, but I crimped the bottom inch or so of the wrapper. Add the candy bar, embellish as desired, and the basic wrapper is complete!

It is our hopes that during Teacher Appreciation Week, we make our teachers feel like 100 Grand, but we all know they truly are PRICELESS!
