Foud this cute gift idea in a magazine and did this for a couple of our preschool teachers.
To make your own, you need a bottled drinks in a cardboard carrier.
I found the Starbucks Frappuccino to work best and the bottles necks aren't to skinny to fit in yummy snacks.
So to begin, I peel off the front and back labels. Then stick them and the caps in the dishwasher. There will still be a sticky film on the bottles where the labels were. Use Goo Be Gone to remove the stickiness and I found the ink printed exp date on the bottle to come off with it as well. Once the stickiness is gone I washed the bottles again in warm water. If you want to skip this step you could always use pretty paper to cover this area, but I liked the whole clear bottle to show off treats and peppermints and whatnot.
Now to cover the cardboard carrier. I first secured the bottom that likes to move around with regular tape. Then I used the box to make templates of Christmas paper to cover the carrier. I did rectangular pieces for the front and back and then 2 separate pieces for each side. Once I had templates for each size and shape, I used those pieces to make more to have enough tocover the whole thing. To attach all this fun paper to the original carrier I simply used my favorite tool: double sided tape. :)
Then I punched holes and used double sided tape to attach to the tops of the caps. Filled jars with teachers fav snacks and tied a festive silver ribbon.
This would be a fun way to present small office supplies or any other small items.
And here is another set of teacher gifts we did:
I got these cute boxes from Target dollar spot.
And put some goodies inside.
Inside I put a small jar of snack mix. Then I included a suggestion card to resuse jar when snack was gone. I added a baggie of rock salt and tea lights to put in the jar when it's empty. We also included some yummy homemade chocolate dipped marshmallows with peppermint sprinkles.
