You know how much I love to make things :) the end of the school year is no exception!! It is no secret that I LOVE the school that the kids go to… And, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the teachers there!! So, every year, at least at Christmas and the end of the year, I try to let them know how much I appreciate them with a little something that I make…
Well, this year I made Mug Rugs!! What’s a mug rug you ask? It’s also called a snack mat, and here’s the little tags that I made to accompany the mats so that the teachers know what they are too :) I found an explanation on Pinterest to explain what mug rugs are, made tags using MS Word, cut them out and attached them to some pretty paper (Fancy Pants) and added a piece of ribbon to close the bags.
Here’s the stack of mats before I bagged them and got them ready to be gifts. The fabrics are from the School Days line by American Jane for Moda fabrics… I love how they came out… Amazing how easy it is to make super cute little gifts with a charm pack and jelly roll! Here’s the stack of them… Front
I made one for each of the teachers that the kids have, including all the specialists (I’m a specialist teacher myself :) I know how hard they work too!)… Plus the main office staff and principal and asst. principal. 16 mats in all. Here’s a close up of one of them, they are all different…
The mats measure about 5″x10″ For the kids main teachers, I made a mat, but found these pretty stoneware teacups and saucers, put the mug rug, some fancy teas and a Starbucks gift card in the cups and packaged them up.
