Apple for the teacher...?

Here is a couple of the gift bags I made up for the teachers at my boys' school. I bought small plain gift bags from Hobbycraft and have printed pre-coloured digital images to decorate. I have simply tied some gingham ribbon around the handles and added a plain kraft card tag. I had lots to make but with the pre-coloured images they really didn't take too long. See below for what's inside...

Gift bag - Hobbycraft (sold in sets of 5)
Owl image - Wise Owl digital image from Pink Gem Designs (this chap is a freebie download at the moment so go grab him!)
Boy image - from the Philip & Phoebe School Days digital image set from Pink Gem Designs
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Bazzill Basics kraft cardstock, Circle & scallop circle Nesties, brown chalk inkpad

Here are some of the gorgeous personalised blackboard apples the lovely Lyn at JJ's Craftshop made for me. I have wrapped them in tissue and added a thank you tag and also popped a pen in the bag. Hope the staff like them, I do ;-)

    What a totally inspirational piece for my little poppy challenge, it's absolutely perfect.

    I can see you had a really busy time in the run-up to the end of term, hope you can now have a little bit of rest and enjoy the sunshine.

    Thank you so very much joining in my little fun challenge.
