Happy Birthday Turtle

This is my first post as at Guest at Lollipop Crafts.  The challenge is to create a box or gift and we are sponsored by Meljen's Designs.

I made a cute little gift bag from a lunch bag.  Now normally I would fill it with a couple of pencils, a notebook and some stickers for the students in my class but these are at school!  So I substituted the pens and some paper but hopefully you get the idea.  I have used a few different October Afternoon kits - working on my scrap pile!  This is for a little boy in my class whose favorite color is green.

I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop:


I was inspired by this photo from the Etsy Inspired Challenge:


I used the Turtle's Friend Image on the card:
