Treat Tags: You Deserve a BREAK

One of my favorite things to do is send happy mail to folks in our school district. 
This year I actually put items on my calendar to remind me to 
do so every few weeks and Friday was the first day!

It may seem silly to send folks little bags of snacks with a cute note, 
but it's funny how something little bitty with a note reminding someone 
that they are loved and appreciated- can make a HUGE impact. 

As I complete my little thank you treats I'll post the printables 
so you can make your own. 
In each case I put my own little note on the bottom 
for for the printable version left them plain. 

This week I sent out little  Kit Kats with a note that said:
You deserve a BIG Break for all that you do!
Enjoy this little one! We love and appreciate you so!

You can print out your own copy HERE
Some files are a PDF with four per page on it,
some are PDF files with four pages per file, 
and some are JPG files that you can print in any size.
(That's how I printed these- wallet sized)
If you aren't sure how to print four per page from a PDF, 
you can find directions for doing so HERE
