If you're like me, the end of the school year sneaks up on you. And it gets CRAZY busy...or maybe it's just me that gets crazy... This week I needed teacher gifts QUICK. But still I wasn't willing to just phone it in with a candle or something I picked up in a hurry at Target.
Then I came across these super cute cups - $1.99 each. WINNER. I filled them with tropical starburst and jelly beans. The jelly beans help to fill in the gaps between the wrapped candy. I only used the white, red, orange, yellow, and pink jelly beans so the colors would match. Then I ate ALL the black ones, because I am the only weirdo on the planet that actually likes black jelly beans.
Here's a little trick for filling the treat bags - Start out filling just the bottom of the bag with a little bit of the candy, then drop it in the glass and finish filling it to the top. If you try to fill the bags up first, you'll have a really hard time getting it back down into the cup. Give it a shake to get everything to settle. Then close the top with a twist tie and finish off with a tulle bow.
I made cardstock tags and hot glued the gift card envelope directly to the card. Then, to make it a little more personal, I added my kids' favorite happy hour drinks. Tie it on with the twine and DONE. Super quick, super easy, and at less than $10 each, super easy on the wallet.
Have fun, and HAPPY SUMMER!
