Back to School Treat Bags and Teacher Gifts 2015

I am entering this into the Lawnscaping challenge called back to school

This year I decided to do some back to school treat bags and began to search pinterest.

I found a free printable for the teacher gifts and also the school bus idea that I made it my own by using my supplies in my stash.

 Alivia filling her bags, she has seven kids in her pre school. This is her first year and we are making eight bags just in case they get another student.
 Just guessing and by going by last years count from Kindergarten were making 25 for Alexis 1st grade class.

After we filled and sealed the bags we put the topper on the bags.
All on sale over at Target.

I bought two 25 count boxes of fruit strips and saved what I didn't use and put in the girls snack cupboard, about $5 a box.

I bought a giant pack of skittle and star burst for $8 I had four of each left.

Three bags of mini yogurt raisins for about $2.25 a bag.
 The bag sizes are about 4 by 6 and I purchase them at Hobby Lobby in the jewelry section, they have many different sizes and I like to pick up a pack each time I go there.

This is the back of the treat topper. Using some Dollar Store foam squares There were 60 squares in the pack and I used one whole package plus a few from a different package
 I used Doodle Charms Cricut Cartridge page 117 at 2 3/4 inches

I used Craft Smith 12X12 paper I purchased at Micheal's on sale under $5 a pack.

I used the paper saver and auto fill button to get the most cuts from my 12X12 paper.

White brads from my stash for the wheels, a jelly roll pen to make the cute faces and a My Pink Stamper School stamp set for the stamping.

The paper is from a stack by Micheal's my mom got me a while back.

These are the stuff inside the mason jars.

The pen and nail polish I picked up at the Dollar Store and every thing else I purchased from Walmart.

The gum came in a pack of three so I bought two and the chocolate had enough for two pieces per mug
 All filled up.

 I cut out the printable and added a hole with a hole punch.
 Alivia has three pre school teachers.

I used Lawn Fawn Alphas to spell out from "heart" alivia and she helped me stamp the back of them.
Alexis has one main teacher and also a Literacy teacher, she also helped me stamp the back of the print ables.
All done.
