Hello friends and welcome back to my blog.

Today I’m sharing with you a project that I came up with for an upcoming craft night.  I was recently asked to hold a class for a group of teachers.  Of course, I said yes. The apple is the project the teachers will be making.  I LOVE it!  I hope they all do too.

I believe that teachers are worth their weight in gold, so If I can contribute to a fun night out for these ladies, then that is what I plan on doing.

I wanted to come up with a project that the teachers could make and then proudly display on their desks.  I wanted the project to reflect their passions and their trademark so an APPLE came to mind.  When I showed the organizer of the group my idea, she flipped, she said YES right away.

With the project approved, I collected the books that they will need.  I’ve drawn the pattern and I wrote a little instruction sheet.

An apple made from a book helps to tie into the teaching theme, cute huh?  The apple that they are making is pretty big.  I don’t know if you can tell how big it is in this photo so I wanted to let you know that the apple is substantial.  I wanted the apple to make a statement on the teacher’s desks so the size is important.

I used a circle punch, Mossy Meadow card stock and the Corrugated Folder to make the leaves.  I combined rubbing alcohol and Cherry Cobbler ink refill in a small spray bottle to make the red spray.  Lastly, I used thick jute to make the bow.   The stem is a stick from our yard.

You don’t have to be a teacher to make this.  I will offer this class to anyone who is interested so just let me know if you want to make one.  If there is interest, I will set up another class date.

These apples would make a GREAT teacher’s appreciation gift or home decor.   Mine sits on our coffee table.  However, because the apple is a form of art, I can move it around and set it in many different places in our home.  For example, the apple would look really cute on a bookshelf, in the kitchen or even in a child’s room.

My oh my I’m excited to teach this project.  It was a ton of fun to create.

Have a great day!  Live Loved my friends, Beverlee
