      I have thought about it for teachers, but I’m not sure if it’s good for teachers to have nips around… lol 🙂 xoxo

    This is such an adorable idea! I love how you added the cupcake liner to the lid, it’s too cute! I’m totally recreating this for other holidays using matching cupcake liners!

      Yes!! It’s perfect! It takes less time than finding a printable layout, cutting them out and attaching it on the lids! Too much work and you can definitely save more time with this! And cupcake holders are inexpensive as well! xoxo

    This is such a cute Valentine’s Day gift idea! I went to a wedding once where the wedding favours were little jars of hot chocolate (not as nice as this though!) and I thought it was so sweet. I still have the bottle!

    Cool DIY project! Since I don’t drink I would just replace the liquor with something else.

    Yummy. Gender neutral gifts can be a pain to figure out sometimes so this is fantastic.
