Back to School Teacher Hello Gift Bag SuInk

I found this Anna Griffin Template set while at the craft store the other day, and I couldn't wait to try one of the templates out, so I figured since school starts next week that I would make this cute little gift bag for my youngest's teacher this year. This is the very first time that I have tried to make something like this, so I know I probably need some practice to refine it, but all in all, I think it turned out pretty cute. I sort of wish I would have chosen a different ribbon, but it will do. I filled the bag with scented bath crystals and candles that are wrapped with a ribbon and tag. The little note on the back of the bag is from a Stampin' Up template and opens up to a lined envelope that has a note to the teacher from my son. Was very quick to make and a nice way to have my son start the school year with his new teacher. I am quite sure I will be making more of these.
If you would like to try something like this out too, check out my blog candy that I am about to post on here. I have the very same template in there as a part of the candy, and there are 5 other templates to make some other really cool things too. I am entering this into the SuInk Challenge this week that is asking to create a Back-to-School project, and this is a perfect fit, I think. If you are wanting to make a back-to-school item too, hurry up and enter it into their challenge. What fun!
Thanks for dropping by. Let me know what you think, and don't forget to sign up for my candy before you leave.
Have a great day!!

What a great gift idea, I am sure the teacher will love it. After all who doesn't love bath stuff and candles, especially when they are presented so nicely! Thanks for playing along with the challenge on SUINK, we are glad to have you and hope you come back again next week!
