a valentine gift for our teachers

The day before Valentine's Day I instagrammed a few pics of the valentines I was making for the boys' teachers.
I got a few questions about them, so here are the deets...

I nestled a tea towel, English muffins, a jar of strawberry jam, and a jar of cinnamon honey butter into a box.

The cinnamon honey butter is a recipe I've had scribbled down from a blog/the internet/can't remember it was before Pinterest for a long time.  I usually make it as a hostess gift at Christmastime.

This is enough for two little mason jars, plus a little bit leftover for you. ;)

1 stick butter, softened to room temp.
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Then all you do is whip it.
Whip it good.
Haha.  I crack myself up! :)

I made the tags for the lids the same way I made them for cupcake in a jar party favors.

The English muffins and jam are store bought.  I took out a few muffins and tied them up in simple cellophane bags.

If I were an overachiever, I'd make my own jam.

But if you do buy the cute little Bonne Maman jars, you could always turn a few into tiny salt & pepper shakers. :)

And last but not least, the tea towels are just a simple red version of my DIY rainbow dish towels.

Happy weekend, friends!
