Halloween Survival Kit's for Teacher Gifts!!

So this year I decided I wanted to get a little more creative with my teacher gifts, so here is what I have come up with! And first and foremost I could not have pulled this off at the last minute without my Bestie Heather AGAIN!!)

Here are the items I started with, and being as thrifty as I am, I must tell you what I paid for these. Mini first aid kits, cough drops, itch sticks and shout wipes (not pictured) were all FREE using coupons. I paid $0.25 for the Purell to go and $0.01 for the pencil box both during the back to school sales at Office Depot. I also purchased some advil to go for $0.97 each and added them later, along with a couple Hershey kisses. (I paid retail for those.... shh!)
I took all of the first aid kit contents out and placed them into the box along with all of the other items. Then Heather helped me assemble the tags using cardstock, my Cuttlebug embossing folders, ink, stamps and some ribbon, and here is what they look like.


Outside all complete and ready to go. (do you love how the Purell matches the box?) that is why I bought them and I had NO idea what I was going to use them for, but I knew for $0.11 for the set that I HAD to have them!!
OK, so for the cutest part... this is what is on a typed note inside the box (not shown)

On Halloween it's all about Trick or Treat,
but in the end most Teachers are just plain Beat!
I'm giving you this Halloween survival kit,
and I'm pretty sure it will be a big hit!

Kit Includes:
First Aid Supplies - For Vampire Kisses
Itch Stick - For Spider Bites
Hand Sanitizer - To prevent Zombie Virus
Cough Drops - To Soothe a sore throat from screaming
Advil - To cure a Witch's Brew hangover
Chocolate - Because every great teacher needs a little chocolate in her life!


The kids have 3 teachers, plus we always give past teachers one too, so we made a total of 4 of these.... two of each color! And If I must say so myself they came out fabulous!!
