a sweet “thank you”

I’ve admired this idea ever since I saw it a year ago. At the time, I didn’t have an occasion fitting enough, until the end of K’s school year — thank you treats for K’s teachers!

The perfect, elegant thank-you, I thought!

I put vanilla frosting in a piping bag, and it was so great that I didn’t have to worry about it being perfect — after-all, it was getting “smooshed” in a jar anyways!

I wish I had the time to find the cute wooden spoons or make some cute labels on the computer, but overall it was easy, looked great, and best of all, we did it the night before!

    • K has only classroom 1 teacher, but we made a dozen and she handed them out to the rest of the school teachers.
