Anyway, I made these cute little treats for his teachers and for my grade level teachers. As I sit here, I am thinking...wonder if I could make enough for the entire faculty?? They all deserve much more than some chocolate, but I dare say....chocolate is a good way to start!!
Best part about these treats is that they are, as I always say, SUPER CUTE AND SUPER EASY. Oh!! Can't forget SUPER ECONOMICAL! :)
Here's what you need:
toilet paper rolls
Ok, so first thing you have to measure the width of the tube.
I just recently broke my paper cutter, so I had to go old school on this one. I measured out the width of the tube on the back of my paper, then drew a straight line.
Then cut on the line, and you have yourself enough for two treats. Cut this column of paper in half.
Now you are ready for the first layer of Mod Podge. Slap some on the back of your paper...
Then place the tube on the paper. Make sure it's straight, so the paper doesn't end up crooked.
Roll the tube until it's covered with your paper.
After this, you may have to wait a few minutes and let it dry completely. Once it's dry, it will be time for the second coat of Mod Podge on the covered tube (coat the picture side) and let dry.
Take the dried tube and bend one end of the tube down like this...
Then fold the other side down like this....
Now you are ready to flip tube over and fill with candy goodness! I used Hershey Kisses. A yummy classic, AND Easter colors (that match my spring-y scrapbook paper) on sale! Whoop Whoop!
Repeat same folding on open side of tube. Use a dab of hot glue in the middle of container to place ribbon, then wrap it around to back of container. Hot glue ribbon down. On the front, you can make your own label or you can use mine. You can download it here.
FOOT NOTE: When you click on link, it will show you the labels, and they won't look right. Go ahead and click download. It will give you an option to choose Adobe, Word, or Txt. PICK "WORD"!! Then it will download the proper label. Sorry to make it such a hassle. I am working out the kinks here. :)
Now, go out and whip up some treats, and show those hard working teachers that you appreciate all that they do!!
