A State-"mint" of Gratitude

My daughter is moving up classes in her school this week and I wanted to do something small and inexpensive, but thoughtful for her teacher that we are leaving. When I saw this "mint" idea here, I knew what to do. Any kind of mints will do, but I love Andes, so I went with them. You can imagine York Peppermint Patties, Junior Mints, peppermints, spearmint gum, it all works! Since I was only using Andes, I found coordinating ribbon in my stash and tied it around like a present.
I wrote my "mint" note out and layered it with extra scrapbooking paper from my scraps.

Ta-Da! A senti-"mint"-al (pun intended!) note for any teacher, volunteer, or friend that doesn't cost a lot, but means so much.
