Monday Made It~ June 3rd

It might not be officially summertime for me, but I'm linking up with Tara for the summer series of Monday Made It :)
So, since it's my first summertime link up...this post is all about being glad it's {almost} summer.
I'm giving these treats to my son's teachers on Thursday.  {Luckily, I don't think any of them are readers of this here blog...and if they are, well, "Surprise"!}
I started off by finding the cute little orange slices at Coley's Corner.  {Click here for the free tag!}
I printed them, and used my fancy circle cutter (a fabulous find last summer) to cut them all within seconds.  OK, maybe not seconds...but it was pretty fast.
 Then, I punched a tiny hole in the top center.  That hole puncher is another of my favorite things.  Much like Oprah, but way cheaper than any of her favorite things.  It punches a little bitty hole that allows ribbon to stay in place and the tag stays snug.
Attached to the precious card is a cool orange/mango flavored water and a bag of goldfish.  Nothing fancy.  But, it's the thought, right?
Now, next Monday will officially be "summer" for me.  So, I'm hoping to see you next week with more than just a dinky teacher gift.  Hopefully.  That is unless the pool calls........
Head on over to my friend Tara's place and check out all of the awesome things that you will be busy making this summer.
