St. Patrick's Day Treat for Teachers {Free Printable}

Being a former teacher, I know how simple little gifts of appreciation can brighten your day. That being the case, I try to do things for Manny's MDO teachers for most holidays. My sister showed me this idea here and I thought it'd be the perfect St. Patrick's Day gift for a teacher. Since these next 2 weeks are absolutely crazy for us, I actually planned ahead and put them together last night. (That, and the fact that I wanted to eat the leftover candy.) Here's the scoop if you want to make these too.

What you need:
--Rainbow Twizzlers (you can find them at Walgreen's, Wal-Mart, and sometimes Target)
--Gold individually wrapped Rolos
--ziplock bags (I used quart size)
--container/box to put everything in (I got my little baskets from the Dollar Spot at Target.)
--basket filler (optional)

1. Pick out a red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple twizzler, and place them in a ziplock bag. Then I just wrapped the excess of the bag around the back side of the package. Also? I didn't notice til I saw these pictures - but I have my rainbow backwards. It's killing my OCD to not retake the pictures, but I'm not giving in. I will rearrange this before giving it to his teachers though. :)
2. Fill the basket with some shred paper, unless you want to fill the whole basket with candy. These baskets actually hold a LOT of candy, so I filled them about halfway with shred paper before adding the Rolo's.

3. Print out the tag, punch the corner, and tie it on with a ribbon. If your basket doesn't have a handle, just prop it in the basket by the Twizzlers. I made 2 different versions of the tag - one for a teacher, and then a generic one in case you wanted to give it to a friend, coworker, child, etc. You can download the My Teacher is a Treasure tags here or the You are a Treasure tags here.

Happy Tuesday! :)
