Apples for the Teachers

Where I work, we like to have name tags on the office doors, and it’s fun to use something seasonal.  So last weekend, I got a little carried away with apples!  I used bunches of scraps of red, yellow and green designer paper scraps to cut out a bunch of Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples using the sweet Red Delicious Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things.

Apples for Teachers

So, like I said…. I got carried away!  I was watching a Walking Dead marathon, and just kept cutting and before I knew it I had well over 100 apples!  LOL  We only needed about 20 of them at work, so with the remaining 80 I made some 4x4 note cards, and plan to bless four different teachers in my life with them!  Three sets are going to church today, and one set is being mailed to my beautiful cousin’s daughter!  These were so fun to make!  I loved mixing the patterns of the apples and the leaves.

As luck would have it, the great folks at Simon Says Stamp are having a Back-to-School challenge this week on their Wednesday Challenge blog, so this fits perfectly with that theme!

Have a blessed Sunday, and thank you for stopping by!
