Gift set for Jacob's Teacher

Here is a gift set I made for my son's teacher {Mrs. B} for Valentines Day. I first made the tags with each childs name on it. This was a project that was not supposed to take very long, but it did >"<

This was my first card using acetate, it was pretty easy, you just have to be very careful, its hard to cover a blemish on something that is see through. I kind of just guessed on what to do but if you go to http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ there is an area that will give you a tutorial on stamping on acetate. I used Real Red & Whisper White cardstock from SU. The polka dot ribbon is from May Arts.
I found this stamp set at Hobby Lobby yesterday. Its from Stampabilities {and was 50% off}, its called the Teacher Survival Kit. Its too cute and Mrs. B. has to have it >"<

Now I need to start on my daughter Kendall's Valentine's & figure out what I am making for Jacob's class party tomorrow.
