back to school note book and gift bag

hi all
here is a notebook and giftbag i have made for a friend to give her grand child who has just started school and is being so good about going everyday.
i used the  owl digi from daisy doodles,the papers are from theclipartfairy sweet candy pack,i used a martha stewart edge punch, and retro flower punches from e k success.
I used a small cello bag used for holding finished cards,i cut a top using a nestie,i decorated the nestie then folded it over to make a bag top.
