Free Printable - Teacher Appreciation - "You're the Balm"

It is officially Teacher Appreciation Week!  I love this time of year when we can thank our wonderful teachers for everything they have done throughout the school year.  Brody's school is actually celebrating it a week later than the "official" week.  So I apologize if this is too late for you to use, but I think teachers should be thanked year-round, so hopefully you can use some of the printables that I will be sharing within the next few days or save the ideas for next year!

As usual, I like to have an affordable gift that Brody can give to all of his specials teachers.  Especially since he has six PE teachers, we needed to keep the gifts within a budget.  So we thought it would be useful to give the teachers ChapStick or lip balm.  I was lucky enough to snag some multi-packs of ChapStick on clearance after the Easter holiday.  And of course I had to make some sort of tag with a pun.  I think I am dating myself with the statement "You're the Balm!", but I remember using the term "You're the Bomb!" a lot when I was growing up.  I actually probably used that term just a few days ago and had to explain to my kids what that meant... LOL!

Here are the other supplies/tools you will need for this gift:
- ChapStick or Lip Balm
- 3x4 Organza Bags (can be found in wedding section of craft stores)
- Shredded Crinkle Paper
- Hole Puncher
- Scissors or Paper Trimmer
- Tag Punch (optional)
- "You're the Balm!" Mini Gift Tags printed on white heavy cardstock paper

You can print the tags HERE or click on the image below:

- Once you have the "You're the Balm" gift tags printed, cut out each tag that you need, or if you have a punch in shape of a tag (found at Michaels or JoAnn), then you can use the punch to punch out your tags. 

- Whan you have all of your tags cut out, then use your hole puncher to punch a hole where you will put the ribbon through to tie to the organza bag.

- Fill your organza bag with shredded crinkle paper and the ChapStick and attach your tag using the ribbon and tie closed.

And now you are ready to give your teachers their gift!
