We just finished VBS and I wanted to give my helpers a little something for helping me out. I had the nursery class and we had double what we were expecting and we had the smallest classroom (because we weren't expecting that many). It was fun, but it was a challenge.
I made a set of 4 coasters for each of my helpers (I had 4). So I made 16 coasters total. I personalized them by using their last initial.
Three of my helpers had a last name that started with a "B" and one started with a "M."
After making them, I tied each set up with sisal.
I then placed them in brown kraft paper bags. ( I love brown kraft paper!!!!!!!!!) Stuffed with gold metallic tissue paper, added tags that I stamped, then wrote their name on the front of the tag with a gold metallic pen.
On the back of the tag I wrote a little note in gold metallic ink.
