Teacher's Apple Box Set

Since the end of the school year is upon us, I wanted to make another teacher gift!

Doodlecharms has one of the cutest apples! 

 I decided to make another box set of cards like my last teacher appreciation project!

The box apple is cut at 6" and the card apples are cut at 3".  I used my Gypsy to weld them into cards. 

I added the little tag with Bakers Twine from My Craft Spot and stamped it with a My Creative Time stamp.  The tag was missing something so I sponged it blue (which actually worked out great because now the project fulfilled a Throwback Thurs requirement)!

The little apple shaped cards are stamped with "...just a little note" but it does not show up well in the pictures. 

Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up! Solid Cardstock, Stamp, Bermuda Bay Ink
  • Bo Bunny Double Dot Paper
  • Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge
  • My Creative Time I Believe in Leprechauns Stamp Set
  • My Craft Spot Black Licorice Bakers Twine
  • Stickles
Challenges:
FCCB Challenge Me Monday #59 Teacher Feature
My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Doodlecharms must use blue somewhere
Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #6 Take Shape
 ***I'M ALSO ADDING THIS TO YOU HAD ME AT CRAFT'S FIRST OFFICIAL MADE IT MYSELF MONDAYS!!  WHAT A FUN WAY TO SEE NEW CREATIONS!***

I hope this inspires you to thank a teacher this year!  Thanks for stopping by!
