If you are a teacher or around kids very often, one thing you are sure to know is that they always have germy little hands. So what is better than giving a teacher some custom hand sanitizer for teacher appreciation!?! Cute and very practical!
This first picture is courtesy of Adventures of Room 129. To make this, she used clear avery labels and if you stop by her blog, you will see that she has included a free download for this label. Thank you Mrs. Harris!!
This next hand sanitizer comes from How Does She? She chose to use vinyl on her sanitizer. Check out the link to see the tutorial on how to make this...
This last way involves a soap dispenser instead of hand sanitizer, although that would probably work with this method too. You will use an overhead transparency sheet. Basically print your saying and print it out on the sheet. Cut it down to size and slip it in the bottle. The more detailed instructions I had saved on my computer, but I didn't have where I found this from so I am sorry for not having the link. If this is your idea, please let me know so I may give you credit. Thanks!
Personalized Soap Dispenser
Soap container (Item #B3222 at Industrial Container)
Pump topper (Item #DP111E at Industrial Container)
8½"x11" paper with individual templates for copying or printing
Transparencies with copied templates
Wire cutters or heavy duty scissors
Clear hand soap
Purchase soap container and pump toppers at Industrial Container. Together, they cost $ .83. Using wire cutters or scissors, trim the pump topper so that it will fit in the container.
Create a template for each container on your computer. First create a text box (3.2"Hx2.5"W). In several different fonts, type the words to the "hand text." (See picture) There will be some blank room below the text. That will help the text show up in the correct place when trimmed and placed in the soap container. Copy the text box and paste several next to each other. I fit 9 on a page. At the top, you can put the name of the teacher.
Print or copy templates onto transparencies. (Using a laser printer or copy machine.) Cut out each text box, trimming to just over 3 inches high by 2 ½ inches wide. Roll up and put into the container. Fill the container with clear soap. Screw the pump topper on top and decorate with holiday ribbon. (You can give this alone, or add a hand towel.)
