Green Week- Goodie Pouch

I taught preschool for years before I went back to school, and I absolutely loved receiving small tokens of appreciation. The thought that parents thought of me every holiday, meant the world.
Here is a very simple and cheap way to show that kind of appreciation all while being green-Goodie Pouches: These are perfect for teachers, friends, or your children. Grab any old embellishment package/pouch. I used some from MM embellishments:
Remove the tab, embellishments (I keep mine in jars) and paper from the inside:I used some St. Patrick's Day Printables from Blueberry Freckles. Just $2, can't beat that!I printed them on card stock & cut the squares with scissors:
I also used EK Sucess (2" scalloped, 1.75" circle punch) for the circles.

I also used left over pop-up dots for the tags. No wasting around here! ;)
Decorate your pouch using old scraps of green pattern papers & ribbons:
Just add some chocolate coins or a gift certificate to Starbucks...something affordable. :) There you have it, a great St. Patty's day token of appreciation. xoxo,
