Teacher Appreciation Gift

I know teacher appreciation week was last week, but I didn't get the pictures on the computer right away.  Rest assured that the gift was given last week :)
 I wanted a way to dress up this lotion that I was giving my son's teacher.  The colors I used for this gift bag are a bit non-traditional for a teacher but they matched the lotion bottle, so that is what I went with.  The papers are from DCWV's Freshly Picked stack.
 I embellished the topper with trendy twine embroidery floss and my homemade enamel dots.  The hands were my son's contribution to the project.  I traced his hands and he cut them out.
Here is a close up of the tag.  It was a free printable from here.

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
