Hello Everyone!

Thank You for joining me for my 2nd part of these End of Year Teacher Gifts!

I made another gift set for my son's Pre-K Teacher Aide, a BERRY SMOOTHIE. It uses the same "Berry Thankful" theme as the BERRY BASKET, but this time inside of a clear plastic tumbler.

Just like the BERRY BASKETS, I filled the plastic tumbler with some 3D Strawberries with chocolate kisses inside. I used a 3D Strawberry file I designed last year - available upon comment request -, but if you have the Cricut Spring Cottage Cartridge you can cut them out at 3.25".

Before filling and closing the 3D Strawberries, I ran them thru my Cuttlebug Machine and de-bossed using the "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder. I then doodled some lines and dots with my Sakura Gel Pen. The strawberries were closed using some Trendy Twine "Twisted Lime" Twine - available at My Craft Spot

I tied some more My Craft Spot Scarlet Red Crinkle Ribbon around the plastic tumbler and centered a mulberry flower with a tag stamped with the My Craft Spot "Thanks" Tiny Tags Stamp Sentiment.

To finish off the BERRY SMOOTHIE, I placed it in a large cellophane bag.

I hope you have enjoyed my BERRY SMOOTHIE Gift Set.

  1. So so cool! I love how you filled the cups and the gorgeous ribbon and tag tied around the whole thing! Super cute!

  2. Oh my gosh! I just left the post above to putter around your blog and am totally swooning over this idea! These would make great gifts for our classroom teachers to give to room moms too. I'm going to share this idea with with them for next spring. Thanks! :)

  3. What a berry sweet treat... Thanks for joining in the Simply Sunday Challenge fun at Getting Cricky
