Kindergarten is Sweet Gift Idea

I am SO excited about how my beginning of the year gifts turned out!

 On Meet the Teacher Night I always like to have a little something to send my new Kinderbabies home with. My classroom is circus themed, so I have been racking my brain to think of something cute and circus related to give.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently joined Sam's Club and I am a little obsessed with it! : ) While shopping the other day, I came across this:

 (Don't mind the nutritional information hehe...)
 A pack of 8 cotton candy tubs was a little under $6, so I loaded up my cart and started my project! 

First, I used my Cricut Expression 2 Machine to cut out lots of different colored "flower" shapes. If you have the Cricut Expression 2, the "flower" shape is included on the machine under essentials. I made them 5 inches. I'm sure you could find a similar shape on a die-cut machine.

Then I made my little message on the computer. I used a circle that was 3.5 inches so it would fit right in the middle of the "flower." 

Next, I put it all together! I used tulle to tie a big bow around each tub and attached the label with a little bit of hot glue.

I just love them and I can't wait to hand them out to my new sweeties at Meet the Teacher Night. Not to mention it feels so good to have them done with a little less than a month to spare!

Have a fabulous last weekend in July...yikes!
