Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea:
Homemade Fudge

Recently I was trying to come up with a quick teacher appreciation gift, and thought of this idea. I didn't have a lot of time, so I stopped by a local store to purchase pre-made fudge.

Teacher Appreciation Gift

On the right you'll see how I packaged the pre-made fudge that I purchased.

I simply wrapped a piece of rafia around the box, and attached a tag that said "Thank you for being a SWEET teacher!" The teachers loved this gift, and it only took me a few minutes to put together.

Previously I've planned the project a little in advance and made homemade fudge. If you have the time, I highly recommend making fudge yourself. It's really easy, and much less expensive than purchasing it.
