The teacher's name is Mr Coleman, and I decided to put a photo of him on the neck of the bottle, and add Est 2010, so he knew when he got it. CPFJ is the name of the school. It isn't a really clear photo but was the only one I could find on the school website.
I have decoupaged the label, bottle top, and label on the neck of the bottle and printed them all out on photo paper, so they are really glossy, although you can't tell from the photo. The picture was then matted onto some silver and red card. I have made the white card background paper, and for the first time tried out 'watermarks' in Word, and have just copied and resized the main bottle lots of times to give the effect on the white card. Really please with the result and my friend loved it.
I'd like to enter it into:

Well this is what I came up with, another 3d part decoupage card:
