Cheap, Easy and OH SO CUTE, gift for a Teacher/co-worker

Well I have one more day of school and then I am on Summer Vacation! WAHOO! I have several co-workers that I work with closely and I wanted to give them a little something, a token of my appreciation, if you will. I found these cute FREE printables of lemon slices that say "Start your summer with a squeeze" from Poofy Cheeks and they inspired me to come up with the gift you are about to see.

What you are going to need:

Glasses: Dollar Store
Lemons: Big bag for a few bucks at my local grocery store
Paper Straws: Had them on hand but you can get them for a few dollars for a pack of 20.
Yellow Flowers: Dollar Store 3 for $1.
Yellow Napkins: $1.50 from my local grocery store.

All you do is arrange 2-3 lemons in your glass
Adjust your straw in the glass where you want it
Twist the flowers (with the wire on the back) to the straw
Print, cut out and write on the back of the cute lemon card from Poofy Cheeks
Slide the print out into your glass however you see fit and BAM, you are done.

It's cute, thoughtful and very inexpensive to create!

I'm going to sneak them into my co-workers boxes in the teacher's workroom tomorrow morning. I hope they like them.

Thank you so much to Poofy Cheeks for so generously providing the FREE printable and inspiring my creation! I just know these are going to be a big hit!
