School Supply Cake Tutorial

1.  School Supply Cake for Teachers ~ Now that the kids are back in school, it’s time for teachers to start requesting those extra supplies they need for the classroom.  Instead of sending them in a plastic bag, knock their socks off with this fabulous cake!

Survival Kit
2.  First Day Survival Kit ~ This Teacher Survival Kit is super cute and easy!  They are mini floss organizers found at craft stores filled with Band-Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff.  How cool is that?!   Anything can look cute when you divide it up into little compartments, right?
Calculator Gift Tag
3.  Calculator Teacher Gift Tag {printable} ~ Print out this gift tag that says “According to my calculations, this is going to be a good year” and attach to a jumbo (or regular) calculator for a cute little back to school gift.
Pencil Wreath
4.  Sunshine Pencil Wreath {Tutorial}This sunburst pencil wreath would make an adorable Teacher Appreciation gift.  And since the center is made of cork-board, it can double as a little memo board too.  Don’t forget to include some cute push pins.

5.  Back to School Teacher Treat Boxes {Cutters} ~ With you as my teacher I’ll be one smart cookie!  This simple cutter project makes a sweet teacher gift for back to school.  Simply print the tags and add freshly baked cookies to the treat boxes.
Pencil Holder
6.  Printable Teacher Gift {pencils and holder} ~ These free printable labels are perfect for a pencil holder.  Simply print the free label, attach it to a recycled can and fill it with pencils.  Your kiddo’s new teacher is sure to love it!

7.  Back to School Treat Sack ~ These treat sacks are the perfect gifts for tween and teenager kids to give to their new teachers.  They have an office supply look, definitely not juvenile like a yellow bus.  The brown sack is filled with treats or a candy bar, the card is attached with a clothespin (or you could use a paper clip) and are wrapped in red baker’s twine.
Highlighter Gift Bags
8.  The Hi-Lite of My Day ~  This is a quick go-to gift for teachers.  Download the free “Hi-Lite of My Day” gift tag and attach it to a bag of highlighters.  It can’t get any easier than that!

9.  Simple Back to School Gift ~ A fun and inexpensive gift for the new teacher.  All you have to do is print the free “School Days” tag on card stock, fold in half, include a note to the new teacher and add it to a “bouquet” of pencils.  If you decide not to use the free tag you could easily make an apple from card stock to add to the pencil bouquet.
Teacher Gift
10.  Back-to-School Teacher Appreciation Gift ~ An adorable sweet treat jar for teachers!  Simply print out the lid labels that say, “Teacher Treats-To Share, or Not to Share” and attach it to a jar.  Fill the jar with sweet treats such as skittles or m&m’s and embellish the jar with twine and ribbon scraps.  Each jar only cost $5 which included the candy.
Teacher Survival Kit
11.  DIY Survival Kit ~ I adore this modern design survival kit!  It includes a cute little notebook, Sharpie markers, packets of Via coffee (if they aren’t a coffee drinker you could use Crystal Light packets), and a bookmark that says, “It takes a big heart to shape little minds”.  The bookmark is a free printable as well as the delivery label.
Teacher Treat Box & Candy Bar Cover
12.  Treat Box & Candy Bar Cover ~ This french fry inspired treat box is super cute!  The treat box template and candy bar wrapper that says “We’re looking forward to a “sweet” year with you!” are free downloads.  Simply download, print, and insert candy into the treat box or wrap a hershey bar with the wrapper.
