I had an absolute blast making these little packets for each of the teachers at our school. The idea started here . I thought the little homemade sugar cubes were adorable!
After alot of thought, contemplation, pestering my daughter and shopping for a mold, I hit on this great star mold.
Here are the sugar cubes I made! ( I baked my finished cubes in the oven. I didn't want them to fall apart! They were fairly sturdy once they cooled). They were super simple, fast and sooo cute! I added vanilla to the white ones and they smelled (and tasted) delicious.
Now, how to package them... They were too cute to just put into a ziploc bag. Luckily I had these great bags with a pocket in my stash!
Honestly I wasn't sure what to do with them from there....Luckily, wee were deep into watching the Olympics and the rest just CLICKED! I had a million tea bags........"Tea"M JCC! I made made the tea bag wrappers and filled the little bags ....
.......created a little label and viola! An inexpensive, fairly quick gift to share with the staff at school!
(ahem.....it seems my spell checker, my brain, my daughter, my husband and I all cannot spell Olympic correctly! Unfortunately, the bags were made, photographed and distributed ~BEFORE~ I caught the spelling error....SO EMBARRASSING!!)
Spelling error aside, I loved making and giving these little treats!
