Valentine Teacher Gifts

Hi All! I spent some time this weekend getting ready for Valentine's Day. These clear boxes are recycled packaging from my Papertrey Ink stamp sets. They are approx. 6x6x1 with a fold down top. I have seen examples of these filled with peanut butter cups, kisses & nuggets. I found that they hold ten Nestle 100 Grand bars perfectly hence the "Thanks a million" sentiment. I think the teachers will get a kick out of the play on words. Each candy bar is wrapped with a simple 3 x 4 decorated piece of cardstock.

Hope these are an inspiration ~ MamaReebs

The kraft paper behind the candy is the back of packaging.

Stamps: Stampendous Love Buds, SU Happy Hearts, Papertrey Ink Teacher's Apple & Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Versamark Dazzle & Versafine Black, SU Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red, Certainly Celery
Paper: Deja View Little Ones, The Paper Co. glitter pack, SU Pink Pirouette, Archiver Kraft & Red
Punch: EK Success - Dotted Wave Edger
