Hey there Roadies! Mandy Kay Starner here to share a quick and easy way to sweeten the first day back to school for your child's teacher(s).
I started with some cardboard sleeves from my local Starbucks(I have a small hoard of them for times like these)...
I pulled one apart and used it as a template to cut my patterned paper.
I wrapped the sleeves with my papers, cut a strip of a contrasting paper, and then wrapped the sleeves with some Solid Twine Cording.
To decorate my Bottle Caps, I chose papers and embellishments that best fit the recipient. The social studies teacher got map paper in the back, a Kraft Vintage Just My Type Typewriter, and a gold Wood Star Button, along with his initial and the STEM teacher got a numbered paper for the background with a stamped beaker from the Nerd Love Stamp Set. To give the embellishments support to stay flush with the edge of the bottle caps, I had to layer about 3 pop dots under them for the Super Mega Bottle Cap and two for the Flower Shaped Bottle Cap. Here's a photo of what I am talking about...
After my bottle caps were decorated how I wanted them, I attached them to the front of the coffee sleeves. I then, filled the cups with candy and a gift card so they can start their first day back with a sweet treat and a cup of their favorite tea or coffee.
