Today is Teacher Appreciation Day at my boys school. I just wanted to do something simple and seen the idea of using Extra gum a while back (probably on Pinterest, LOL). I decided to make a little goodie bag with the gum in it and I wanted to make a cute apple topper.
Here is what I came up with:
I welded two hearts from Doodlecharms (Cricut) in Cricut CraftRoom to make the bag toppers.
I welded two apples from Doodlecharms (Cricut) in Cricut CraftRoom to make the bag toppers.
I used Pink By Design Our Teachers stamp set for the sentiment (it is we appreciate you teacher) and I altered it by not inking the teacher and then used the Principal from the You put the PAL in Principal from that set. I then used December stamp of the month set and die for the little tag and tag frame stamp. I added a heart to the principal one but was unsure if I liked it so I did not add it to the others.
I also used Doodlecharms to cut the leaf from that cartridge also. I hand cut the stem. I embossed them both using my Cuttlebug (for the first time), using dots for the leaf and wood grain for the stem.
I know it is just a pack of gum but I think it is the thought that counts (we also do a gift to each teacher from the entire class, so this is just a little "extra", HAHA). I did one for each of the 4 teachers my boys have and for the principal and school secretary.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a crafty day!
PS: Since I used my Pink By Design stamps (again :)) I am linking this up over at http://www.pinkcricut.com/ to the 1/31/12 Link Up party! You should stop by and take a look!
