To transform the white paper bag into a sheet of paper, gather a blue, red, and black sharpie marker along with a ruler. Begin by using the ruler to draw horizontal blue lines on the paper bag, aiming to keep them approximately an inch apart. Next, add a vertical red line about an inch from the fold along the right-hand side of the bag. Finally, include your child’s teacher’s name on the lower blue horizontal line.

Once you have drawn the lines and written the teacher’s name, it’s time to fill it up! I enjoy including items that I find useful and would appreciate. The following are the things I included in my gift bag: a yummy cold brew latte, sour gummy candies, Touchland Hand Sanitizer, freeze-dried strawberries, @inclosed Charmpads and a Target Gift Card.
