I formated the design and cropped all the parts I didn’t need. Then I inserted text boxes and wrote my child’s name in a font I liked. Rather than use my child’s profile I opted for and inserted a pretty image of an apple. I printed it off and brought it to my local print store and they copied it onto transparency. I put a ribbon to match the apple and voila – so pretty

Here are some tips- I tried editing and could not do it either. A friend suggested using adobe photoshop. They have a free 30 day trial. I was able to do it all with photoshop, although it took a long time. The hardest part for me was changing Teacher to paraprofessional on some. Another way to do this would be cut and paste with real scissors….
Only problem I have now is that it sank to the bottom of the bottle…

They also suggest that every kid bring a small gift each day, stuff that teachers need/want:

Monday – Bring your teacher a needed school supply (Post-it Notes, Sharpie markers, pencils, etc.)
Tuesday – Bring a note or card for your teacher saying what you appreciate about them
Wednesday – Bring a sweet treat for your sweet teacher
Thursday – Bring a ream of paper for your teacher
Friday – Bring a $5.00 Target gift card for your teacher

I never would have thought to insert the design into the bottle. I kept trying things that you paint or stick on the outside. Thanks!

If you do not do this your ink will end up running and falling off into the soap or the hand sanitizer. You can take it and have it printed at your local copy store as well.”

I created my own template and printed it on transparency film for ink jet printers and as soon as I placed it in the bottle the ink began to come off. I’m curious to know if using transparency film for a laser printer would make a difference. Any comments???

When my children were younger, I always remembered their teachers with little gifts throughout the year, and personally wrote a letter at the end of the year. As a teacher myself though, it is rare that many of us where I work are thanked for the rewarding and tough job we do. To all of you mothers who make the time to thank your child’s teacher……bless you and keep spreading the love! What a BIG difference it makes in a teacher’s day!!!

I so would love to do this, but I am not computer savy, and need help or directions on how to edit to add my childrens name.

Thank You!

Do you have to use a laser printer? What’s the importance of taking it to a print shop?

I went out and got everything to make it before realizing the template is a pdf file. Is there a way to get it in a different format?

Using the template to make Easter gifts for my daughter’s teachers! I scanned in her name in her writing and had her draw a picture which I scanned in as well. Great idea! Thanks so much for sharing!
