End of Year Teacher Appreciation Gift: Up-Cycled Pringles Can - My Sweet Sanity

I know this past week was Teacher Appreciation Day but I like to wait until the end of the year to gift the teachers with one nicer gift instead of two smaller ones and while some parents do send in gifts on Teacher Appreciation Day I know most in my school district just wait the few extra weeks and send in their appreciation gift the last week of school. Now there are a million and one ideas on the internet and Pinterest in particular for just this very thing but I figured I’d just add to the ever-growing list with a cute printable and a fun, cute and crafty way to package up baked goods, candy or other small items.

At the end of every school year I usually send a gift card to the teachers but just handing over the gift card seems so boring so I usually pair it with some baked goods or candy. This year some of the kid’s teachers will be getting a gift card along with cookies packaged in an adorable and very summery flower container that can be reused and is made by up-cycling Pringles cans. I also created a blackboard looking gift tag to hang from the flower. All-in-all I couldn’t be happier with how cute these came out and the Pringles can is the perfect size and shape to hold cookies and help keep them fresh.

Measure and cut the green foam sheet to fit around the Pringles can. Hot glue it into place making sure that the seems meet. Use the flower templates to cut out the three different sized flower shapes and the circle center for the flower in the felt colors of your choice. Hot glue the two felt green leaves to the top of the Pringles lid. Then hot glue the largest flower over the leaves. Follow those with the medium and smallest flowers and the circle. Next fill the can with whatever you are using. Punch a whole in the teacher printable gift tag and run the ribbon through the hole. Tie the ribbon onto the Pringles can about 3/4 of the way to the top.

This is such a pretty way to give a treat to a teacher and they can reuse the flower container when it’s empty. It would be perfect for pens and pencils or to stash treats for themselves on their desk.

Don’t those cookies look good? I realized I needed to bake up some cookies to fill this for photos and wouldn’t you know it, I came up with a new cookie recipe that will be up later this week.

Here is a close up of the printable that would also work well with a bouquet of flowers or a potted plant.
