Back To School Gift Bags

I made some gift bags to match the tags that I made to welcome the teachers back to school.  I just used some lunch sacks.  A square was cut out of the bag and clear acetate was adhered to the inside.  I found this "desk tape" at the teacher store and I adhered it to the bottom of the the bag.  The apples were cut using a Papertrey Ink Die.  One was cut out of chalkboard paper then stamped with white ink with a sentiment from the Lizzie Anne Designs School Days stamp set.

I filled the bag with one of my pencil notepads, a little bag of cookies, and a decorated water bottle.

The water looks green, but it's just the other side of the designer paper.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts My Type stamp set.

The bag is held closed with a clothespin that I decorated with washi tape and a few more stars.
