Teacher's gifts

Teacher's gifts are done! I am so happy with how they turned out. I've never had the nerve to make anything for a teacher's gift because it seemed like a big task. I am not sure WHY I felt the one year we had 6 teachers to give goodies to was the year to take it on, but I did. LOL.

Inside the boxes are 5 different kinds of full sized Hershey's bars. Special dark, regular Hershey's bar, Cookies and Cream, Mr. Goodbar, and Hershey's with almonds. I made little boxes according to the stationary box tutorial from a few posts ago.

For each box I cut the bottom piece to 9"x5.5". I made my score marks at 1.5" all the way around and folded, cut and glued it according to the tutorial above. For the top I cut the paper to 8"x4.5". I scored it at 1/8th of an inch shy of 1" all the way around (to allow the top to be a tad bit bigger). The finished box is 2.5" wide x 6" long and 1.5" deep. I made a little 3"x3" card in matching paper/cardstock and let the kids sign the inside of their own teacher's cards. Then punched a hole on the inside left corner to run the ribbon through that I tied around the package.


  1. What a fun gift. Chocolate is the best gift ever! Thanks for the tutorial, this is a great project :)

  2. very cute! Sorry, I haven't checked broke. You did a great job and I am sure the teachers loved it!
