Recently I made some teacher appreciation goodie bags. I went with an idea I had seen on Pinterest. Here is the information on Beneath My Heart.

The idea was to give each teacher a little treat to thank them for their commitment to teaching the Primary children at church. Each teacher was given a goodie bag and some reminders/pointers to help them with their teaching. I volunteered to make the goodie bags and here is the result:

Thank you for your commit-"mint" tag

yummy mint candies

Each bag contained Andes mints, York peppermint patties, some Lifesaver wintergreen hard candies, and regular peppermint hard candies.

Oh, and I totally made that tag all by myself. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I think the scrapbook paper gives the tag a nice touch.

All in all I am happy with this little project. I thoroughly enjoyed making them!

On a side note, the Lifesaver wintergreen mints are quite potent. They smell so strong. When I opened the bag  I unleashed an intense force of mint smell. Which, as far as smells go, was no big deal, but the strength of the wintergreen smell was surprising. I wonder if the Lifesavers wreaked havoc with the other mints in the goodie bags.

Other side note:
My church has an organization for children ages 3 through 11 called Primary. The children are divided into classes based on their ages. Primary consists of a portion when they are divided into their age group class and taught by a teacher and a second portion when they are combined with other classes and have singing time. It is the teachers of these individual classes that we gave these goodie bags to.

Also, there is a Primary Presidency that helps run the Primary program at a very local level. I am the secretary. That is how I fit into the picture. Just in case anyone was wondering.

I realized I threw some terms out there that might be unfamiliar to people. I do that from time to time. If I ever do that again, and you need to know what on earth I am talking about, feel free to ask.

Other other side note:
Word plays make me chuckle. Commit-mint. Good one.
