One of my favorite crafts as a child was sandwiching leaves between wax paper to hang on the windows. It's one of those crafts that has been around forever and for good reason. It's easy, fun to make and only requires a few supplies. Well, this wax packaging paper "how-to" is made the same way. Simple directions below.
Paper - any color
Small hole punch - any shape
Iron on medium to high heat until wax paper seals together. This is what it will look like once it's done. Sometimes it comes out a little bumpy, that's okay.
Wrap up your gift. Done. The wax paper wrinkles up quick so do your best to wrap the item in one try.
We gave this little package of cookies along with this card to the kids' teachers for Teacher Appreciation Day.
I told my son about the card which reads "thanks a latte" with a coffee gift card included. Here's the conversation that followed:
Evan: Why is there a joke on the card?
Me: Because there's a coffee gift card with it. Get it?
Evan: Oh, I get it. How much is the gift card for?
Evan: Why so cheap?
You know, sometimes I appreciate the honesty that comes from my children. This time, not so much. And I should add, there were some homemade cookies that came with the gift card, sheesh! Please tell me it's the thought that counts. But, it did get me thinking about what other people give for Teacher Appreciation day. Do you give your teachers something? If so, what? Would love to hear your ideas and thoughts.
