FREE back to school printables

I love greeting our teachers each year with a little teacher appreciation gift from the kids. This year I made “Mint To Be” candy wrappers and wrapped them around boxes of Junior Mints! It will make them smile and breaks the ice for what will hopefully be a wonderful year of learning!

And of course I’m giving them to all of you, because I appreciate each and every one of you way more than I can ever express!

There are two versions of the candy wrappers and both can be personalized with your new teacher’s name right inside the file before printing. No special applications needed, just Adobe Reader.

The two candy wrappers say:

  • You were “mint to be” my teacher!
  • I was “mint to be” in your class!

Oh, and I’ve included last year’s free owl lunch box notes too! {grin}

Happy Monday everyone and happy back to school planning! {3 more weeks for us… let the countdown begin!}

    The Scribd link is not working. Possible to email them to me?

      Krystal – we tested the link and all is well. Just make sure you’re clicking on the orange “Download” link to the right of the design. They tend to post ads that say download all around the page too, which is a bit confusing. We’ll also e-mail you.

      Thanks for stopping in!

    Hi Kim! I LOVE these! Thanks so much for sharing them. Question though, when I download them, the “mint” ones do not print right for me. I’ve tried downloading three times, and the font just gets all mixed up. Could I be doing something wrong?

      Kristie – hmmm… we’ve had over a thousand downloads and I’ve not had anyone say there was an issue yet. It’s a high res pdf so the fonts shouldn’t be able to change. Is this when you view, print the original, or when you personalize it with your teacher’s name?

      Thanks for the detail so we can correct if need be! And thanks for visiting!

    I am also not a FB user, but would love this to give to our teachers at the beginning of the year. So adorable!! If you could email me, that would be fantastic. Thanks!
