We are finally ready for Valentine's Day! We just finished up the teacher Valentines, and they turned out super cute. Today I had a change of plans as my original idea just didn't seem very "valentiney" ... so I'm saving it for Teacher Appreciation Week or an end of school gift and will share later. Had to come up with something last-minute with what I had on-hand.
We made paper fortune cookies with an "I'm fortunate to have you as a teacher" kind of filling. I won't bother with instructions on making these as they are all over the internet already much better than I could explain.
The kids were amazed how cool it was to make these out of a circle of paper. So once we were done, I couldn't figure out a way to address them that I liked. So I ended up cutting out take-out boxes using my Silhouette. If you have a Silhouette, the box I used is called take_out_box_c00698_18816. I mention it specifically because I highly recommend it. Went together very easily.
I printed the boxes just big enough to fit a cookie inside and added a simple label using a font called Bonzai. These were easy, and I just think they are the cutest. =)
