Teachers are Treasures {Free Download}

Can you believe May is coming up so fast?! I’m Kiki, from Kiki and Company, and super excited to share this fun project with you today. The first week of May is Teacher Appreciation week. I have so much respect for those who teach my kids 6 hours everyday, and coming from a family filled with educators I can tell you from first hand experience just how time consuming it is. Because of that I wanted to make a little something to let them know that their dedication doesn’t go unnoticed! This project is quick and easy..and with the free printables, costs next to nothing.
I love this gift for Teachers Appreciation week!
To make the gift, you need to download and print the free printable at the end of the post. In addition, you will need Treasures or Nuggets chocolate from Hersheys, a hot glue gun and then I will show you two different ways (and there are so many ways you could do this) to package them up.

Easy Teacher Appreciation gift. Free printable.
Let’s make the chocolates first. Cut out the candy wrappers, and wrap them around the chocolate, securing the label on with a dab of hot glue. As long as you don’t use too much glue, it doesn’t even melt the chocolate. You can even use tape, if you prefer. Aren’t they just the sweetest things..and give just the right message:

Perfect message to tell your favorite teacher. Teacher Appreciation gift.
First, I will show you how to put together this little board that will stand all on its own. Get a piece of cardboard about 5×7 (the topper is 5 inches wide). Cover it with a cute piece of scrapbooking paper. Line up your chocolates just how you want them, and then one by one, hot glue on by adding a dab of glue to the back. Add the topper with hot glue and then cut another piece of cardboard 3×6. Attach scrapbook paper to it (or you could skip this step entirely!). Bend it about 2 inches from the top and then hot glue those 2 inches to the back of the candy board.

Sweet teachers gift to give and free printables to make it!
Once you do that you have a little stand alone gift that is so sweet and thoughtful. They can set it on their desk, and snatch a piece of chocolate anytime in the day!

 Can't wait to make this for my kids teachers!

The other way I will show you to package it is much more familiar. Get your chocolates ready, get a piece of scrapbook pages so it fits in a 5×7 cellephane bag. Lay out your chocolates on the paper and then glue them down. Place the paper and candy in the bag and then add the topper to the top of the bag by gluing it on.

Cutest Teacher Appreciation gift ever! The free printables are with it too!
These are both so easy to do..so easy in fact, you can whip a bunch out in no time! Have your child sign next to the heart, and you can even add a quick note on the back of the topper.
I need to make this for my kids teacher! Perfect Teacher Appreciation gift.
The best part? The toppers come in 3 colors and it is all free!

    I have tried and tried and can’t seem to print the “A teacher like you is a real treasure” printables. Are they still available? Thanks so much!

    I loved these! A great teacher’s appreciation gift, but could you please advise if it is possible to change the size of the chocolate wrappers just in case I want to use a bigger chocolate piece..Thanks a lot!

    I just made these for my kids’ teachers, using some school-themed cardstock from Michael’s for the background. Adorable! Thank you so much for the free download.

    Love these. Have idea – could you format them on a page to print on Avery #8860 (template 5160) Lables? They would assemble a lot faster and not slide off of the candy. Made 16 of these for teachers this past weekend.

    Love these – just made 18 for teacher appreciation week at school. Would you consider having them formated for Avery Labels – template #5160? It would be very easy to essemble and the chocolate would not slide out of the wrapper!!! Just an idea.

    Love this!! Made them for my son’s teacher as an end of year gift. I love that the candy slides right out of the wrapper after it’s been glued on, that way his teacher can display it on her desk and just pop one out without fighting with the glue. Thanks for sharing!
