Fussy and Fancy Back To School Challenge

Hello to all of my crafty friends!
Happy Friday!
We have a brand new challenge at 
Back To School

I made a little teacher gift set
The set consists of 
one hand sanitizer
4 note cards
The images are

I have a precious little girl
graduating from my preschool and I 
made this set with her to give to her
new Kindergarten teacher.
She is older and doesn't nap, so this
was a special project for us to work on together during nap time.
We added 4 envelopes for the note cards
and put the set inside a card box with a clear cover
before tying the whole thing up with a red stitched ribbon.
She was so excited, I let her bring it home yesterday
before I could snap a picture of the packaged project!

The dp is Me & My Big Ideas  Off To School

The embellishments and ribbon is from my stash
