An Apple For The Teacher

Teachers are such a large part of all our families.  I am a grandmother and my grand-daughter attends the same elementary school that her Mother, Father, Uncles, Great Uncles and Grandfather attended.  Wow, how cool is that!  Though trough the years the Teachers changed and the building itself has gone through some minor changes it remains an important part of our family.  This past week was Teacher Appreciation and we sent in these apples for my grand-daughter's teachers.  I only wish I could have made one for the entire school staff.  I just love them.  I purchased the cutting file years ago from www.paperthreads.com and try to use it as much as I can for the teachers I know.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for embossing and the tag is from the Platin Schoolbook and Wildcard cartridges. I made the box out of recycled clear acrylic report covers.  Oh and please notice that oh so luscious striped paper by Basicgrey called "Figgy Pudding".  I purchased the solid red at the end of Christmas last year from Michael's.  How about that, Christmas papers filling my apple needs. Oh and of course there are those Hersey nuggets again.  I love them too!  If my memory serves me correct the same Paperthreads designer who made this apple sliceform also made the Easter egg sliceform file that I had purchased.  Sliceforms are amazing.  I did make a Christmas tree and it took forever to figure out.  They are just little wonders of the math world, and did you know they fold flat!  Yup, you can make these bad boys up, pop them in an envelope and mail them off.  There are pattens for baby bottles and wine bottles, all kinds of fun shapes.  I have seen snow globe patterns too.  Just so cute.  Try to make one, you will be glad you did.  Thanks for visiting.  Lysa
