Homemade Sugar Scrub & Fun Treat Bag Topper Printables

Gosh how I love blogland!  Just so many great ideas floating around.  This year I wanted to make a little something for all my kid’s teachers but with three kids in three different schools with multiple teachers, I didn’t want it to break the bank either.  I found this idea for making homemade sugar scrub that looked so easy even I could do it (believe me I am sooo not crafty!).

A couple of ingredients and some jars later, I had pretty gifts ready to go.  I did mine in Lavender scent and added some drops of lilac coloring to tint the sugar.  Both the essential oil and coloring I found at Michaels in the soap making section.

I purchased round Avery labels at Staples and used Avery’s online templates to create a label for the top.  Doesn’t get any easier than that!

I simply packaged them using tissue paper and ribbon.

I also wanted to send in some treats for my son’s grade 1 class.  All I needed for this one was some baggies, some Smarties and a free treat bag topper printable!  This adorable printable was found here.  She also has a few other really cute ones to choose from, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of her post to see them all.

I originally wanted to send in these reindeer poop ones for the kids but after my husband read the back he totally vetoed it for grade 1’s (such a party pooper he is….just kidding!)  This free printable was found here.

Totally cracks me up!  My husband’s going to take them to his work to hand out instead :)

Hope you all are enjoying the holidays!

    I made a Gingerbread Sugar Scrub for gifts this year…and for myself :). It is fabulous! Those are such fun gifts to make, easy, and in my experience well received. It’s a “thoughtful” gift in a jar….sometimes it’s overwhelming to get/give sweets and cookies for gifts.
