I'm one smart cookie because of you
I bought these chip/dip containers at Big Lots last year at the end of summer for very little, in anticipation of using them as teacher gifts this year.
I printed the teacher name on the computer and taped it to the underside of the lid.
I then used a Testors brand enamel paint marker to "trace" the name onto the top of the container.
Marker was found it in the model section - It is used to customize model cars. It was about $6.00 BUT it works great! I have found, over the years, that standard paint pens wash off, but this doesn't seem to.
You could also use outdoor vinyl, if you have access to it and a cutting machine.
I filled the container with all sorts of cookies, tied in individual bags or prepackaged.
I then tied with a pretty ribbon and attached a little tag, which reads "I'm one smart cookie because of you".
I really liked the way these tuenout out, and how very simple. I will be watching summer clearance again this year to use the idea again next year.
