Back to School Teacher Gift

I've been thinking lately, about what I could give my kids teachers when they go back to school. They start back in only one month! I can't believe it, and I know those 31 days are going to go by way.to.fast! I thought this was a great idea, that could be used as a gift at the beginning of the year, or the end of the year as I did, or both!
Last spring, I went to my friends house for a class, and we made some cute things to wrap around a bottle of hand sanitizer, to give the teachers at the end of the year. I couldn't find any hand sanitizer when I was at the store the night before the last day of school, so we got lotion instead. I thought it made a really cute gift for the end of school.

Since I only made one at the class, I decided I would see what supplies I had and try to make one on my own. This is how it turned out. I don't have the cute Stampin' Up set that we used at the class, but I had some letters and apple stamp, so I made due.

Like I said before, I think this would make a great gift for the beginning of the school year, especially if you use hand sanitizer! What teacher doesn't need that! Thanks Sami for the great idea!
