Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week

Give Your V.I.T. (Very Important Teacher) Something From the Heart

Teacher Appreciation Week is the perfect opportunity to offer much-needed gratitude for all that our teachers do. While there are many ways to honor teachers’ contributions, I always try to come up with something extra special — and this year is no different. I decided to repurpose a Hiland Dairy Sour Cream container into a teacher’s pet apple gift card holder. Let’s get crafting!
