Teacher Gift

One of my fellow teachers had a rough day with yucky messes to clean up.  She's a brand new teacher and I felt so bad for her!  I was trying to think of something to brighten her day and remembered I had picked up some extra hand soaps from Bath & Body Works.  I told my hubby I was going to give her a little card with it...but that it was of course going to have to be cute and handcrafted.  Here's what I came up with...



 The tag is an old one from the Target dollar spot.  The letters had to be tiny to fit and say "I Hope Today is Less Messy."  I added some of the great butterflies the pink Blooming Garden set from Creative Charms.  I also added some Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon from Creative Charms in yellow, green, and pink.  


And here's what it looked like tied on to a matching soap bottle of course :)  Teachers work so hard - I love to try to find lighthearted ways to encourage them!  This also qualifies for the make a gift for someone challenge over at Burlap and Buttercups!
