Brown (and White) Paper Packages Tied Up with String

My sweet son is almost finished with his first year of preschool! He has absolutely adored it and loves his teachers. They have loved him, impacted him, and helped him so much over this past school year. My son is such a sweetheart and "always happy", but very active, talkative and busy. So grateful for these special teachers! In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we bought them some fun goodies and put them in a basket. The challenge was wrapping them up. I was going to purchase some of that clear cellophane stuff, but decided to recycle some tissue paper and brown kraft paper and add a decorative touch with string, washi tape and (of course) paper. So happy with how they turned out and Jimmy and I are excited to give them to his teachers :)
