Quick and Easy teacher gifts

I always like to give my kids teachers a little something for Christmas. This year we have three teachers to spoil and we got movie tickets for them. I also included enough tickets for them to take their spouses and children. Here's how I packaged them up... I used a clear A2 card box, a little bit of cardstock and some ribbon. These are SO simple to make. Here's how I did it...
Take a 3 1/2 x 6 3/8 piece of cardstock and measure 1 inch in from each side and score. I used a scallop border punch on the long edge after I made the score marks.

Then assemble the clear card box and insert the scored piece of cardstock - no adhesive needed. After the cardstock was in place, I used some repositionable adhesive to attach the movie tickets together and to the back of the box.

Then just fill with plain popcorn.....If you're really lucky, your husband will pop it for you in his very own Hello Kitty popcorn popper. Maybe we should just keep that between us okay? Just be sure to NOT use oil, butter or salt on the popcorn, because it will stain the cardstock and tickets. Just keep it plain since it's just for packaging.
I finished it off with a gorgeous red polka dot ribbon and a sentiment punched out with a small oval punch. My kids presented these to their teachers on Friday and they were a HUGE hit!
