I love giving my kids’ teachers a little something at the beginning of the school year, and my kids love it too. It’s never anything big or fancy, just a small token of our appreciation, and to show them how much we are all looking forward to the school year. I actually made this fun “Thrilled to Pieces” Teacher Gift at the end of the past school year for my kids’ teachers, but I went ahead and made a tag for the beginning of the school year so I could share them both with you!
This is SO easy to put together! I filled a mason jar mug with Reese’s Pieces, then tied on the cute tag. I stuck in a orange chevron straw, and added a cute chalkboard flag with my girls’ names on it. When I gave it as an end-of-year gift, I also stuck a gift card into the candy.

If you’d like to make the straw flag, download the chalkboard image below. Open it in pic monkey, and use the Penmanship Print font (download it for free first) to create your names.

Print it, cut it out, fold it in half, then cut a triangle out of the ends to make your points. Use double stick tape to attach it to the straw.
Or…you can just leave the straw plain and sign names to the back of the tag!
You can either click on one of these links and download the pdf files, then print onto white card stock, or if you want the tags to be a specific size, you can save one of the images below to your computer. Then you can insert them as pictures into Word, click on the image, and re-size as desired!!!
