graduation/summer {gift ideas}

I know the summer is over and school has started, but I never posted the gifts I gave out at the end of the school year.

For my sons' teachers, I used this idea from eighteen25.  I do NOT take credit for this photo, because it is not mine.  It belongs to eighteen25.  This is exactly what I did, but I forgot to take pix.  And there is a great free printable on the site as well!
I got this idea from another teacher at my school... I did not know what to give my aides.  She gave me the "orange" idea and I found the free printable here.  I went to the dollar store and bought an orange bucket and Orange stuff... like orange slice candies, orange soda, cheetos, etc.  Easy and cute.
 I don't know what it is, but I can't just give a card... I even make all of my own cards, but I still can't just give a card.  I found this idea for a grad gift and I loved it!   However, I wanted something more authentic.  So, I just searched for images online.  I found a "real" sign.  I cut a slit in the paper so that the hand is holding the money.  Easy.  Then, I could give different amounts of money for different people... like my cousin who finally graduated after like 10 years of school (love ya Libby).
Last, but not least, is my favorite... and I didn't even do it!  My friend had a son graduate from high school and she wanted to give something to all of his friends.  She bought cheap flipflops from the dollar store and made a tag that said, "I'm so flippin excited you didn't flop out of high school."  I am totally going to do that next year!
So, now, you can pin these for next end of school year!
