Teacher Thank You Treats! JustRite & SWEET!!

Above is a gift card for the Teacher Thank You gift I've put together. The scored diagonal lines fulfill today's Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It challenge! Hooray, two SCS challenges completed this week! The card is cut with a Spellbinders's square scallop die after scoring a top fold line. The die is moved down a tiny bit to leave the top fold, hence creating a card. The stamped sentiments are from JustRite Stampers What's Cookin' Set. The center is stamped with StazOn black, while the border is stamped with VersaFine Red. EKSuccess circle punches and Spellbinder's circle die create the various sized circles. I purchased this bag at my local Dollar Tree. It's sold as a purse, however I do not think it is sturdy enough to hold items with any weight. But, I liked it so much, I envisioned utilizing it as a gift bag. So, an idea was in the infant stage!
I then decided to add buttons for embellishment along the bottom handle opening. Using my large eyed needle and 1/8"silk ribbon to attach and tie the buttons secure adds just the right amount of embellishing! The silk ribbon and gorgeous sueded polka dot sheer ribbon on the purse handle is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
I have special teacher thank you items to place in this special bag, and will show you those items tomorrow! Take good care, see you then!
