Wrapping up Teacher Appreciation WeekPosted: May 4, 2012
Today is the last day of Teacher Appreciation week… the day to “bring your teachers something sweet to eat.”
Instead of brownies or cupcakes or bags of candy, I wanted to bring something a little bit different. I just discovered this stuff at walmart a couple of months ago, and I can not get enough. It is so good. The perfect combination of sweet and salty.
If you can’t read it clearly, it says “A sweet and savory dream of white chocolatey drops, chocolate drops, peanut butter drops, almonds, peanuts, cashews, golden raisins and cranberries.” Mmmmm mmmmm, good. I might’ve bought a bag for myself. Maybe.
I grabbed a couple of glass jars from walmart, a piece of fabric and some yarn.
First I cut 2 circles from my fabric. I used my rotary cutter and a plastic paint palette as a guide.
And then filled each jar with the trail mix.
I wanted to wrap each jar with the fabric and some yarn. But first I needed to add a bit of double sided tape to help hold the fabric in place.
I placed the fabric down on the lid, and while the hubs held it tight, I was able to loop the yarn around a few times and tie it in a bow.
