{inspiration} back-to-school treat tags

i'm always inspired when someone else is inspired to do something good/nice for someone else.

i was approached with a design request last week from a reader named Athienna.
here's what she said:

I was so inspired by an old post of yours where you made cookie trays for the office of your children's school, I have been inspired to take it a step further. I will be making individual cookie bags for 100 staff and teachers by Aug 30 (Our first teacher work day). I was wondering if you could make me a custom tag to place on the bag. Maybe one I can type in the type of cookie or a space to write the type of cookie. Thank you for your help.

Athienna Calixto
P.S. I am in love with your blog!!

i was touched by Athienna's generosity and excitement to do something sweet for others.
so, i decided to create a cute custom tag for her at no charge and this is what we came up with:


pretty adorable...right?
because of Athienna's generosity...
i felt inspired to share the tag with ALL of YOU too...


maybe this little freebie will help motivate the rest of us to surprise a few teachers, staff members, school bus drivers or crossing guards with a little something special on the first day back to school.
to keep things simple, you could even cut these out...
sign the tag with a special note or just with your family name...
and insert them into doughnuts or cupcakes.

Thanks again for the inspiration Athienna...i look forward to the pictures of all of your delicious treats...

honestly, i wasn't planning on doing any sort of "welcome back" treat...
but now that i have these adorable tags, i can't let them go to waste! *wink*
my girls are older so it's not really "cool" for me to bring teacher treats to middle school or high school. but that's not going to stop me from dropping something off
to the staff of both schools - (
without the girls knowing, of course)...
(i'm rubbing my hands together with a cackling witch's laugh)...

As a teacher I am always amazed at the generosity of some parents! What a great idea. There are going to be some lucky and grateful teachers. Thanks for the idea.
