Apple Basket by Becki

My sister-in-law was telling me that it was Teacher Appreciation last week.  I thought she was giving me a hint that she was going to be getting me a little present (I do teach my kids at home).  Nope, she was telling me because her son has 3 daycare teachers.  It was a hint, just not one that I would benefit from.  So that set me to make a cute gift for Logan's teachers.

Boss Kut has some really cute school designs.  When I saw the apple I just knew I had to transform it into a gift basket.  So I cut out two of the apples and then I cut out two rectangles.  One for the actually "basket" part and another skinny one for the handle.  Here's how it turned out.

Knowing that she probably expected me to make a card, I cheaped out and just made a quick tag with another Boss Kut file.  I used the Victorian Tag with a shadow for the patterned cardstock.  It has an adorable alphabet on it that I was hoping would show.  It doesn't but that's OK because I think it would have made the tag too big.  The bag size is perfect for the three Bath & Body Works hand sanitizers that she purchased for his teachers.  All in all, I think it turned out mighty adorable.  What do you think?  Like it?  Leave me a comment or two letting me know how you fell about it.  I heart comments and they make me realize I am not talking to myself.  ^__^

It's VERY adorable, Becki, and I'm sure any teacher would be thrilled to receive/use/display it!!! I have no school-age children, but LOVE this idea and know I could use another shape in place of the apple. Will definitely keep this in mind for a future project!!! TFS!!!
