For the Cutting Cafe's Project this week, I chose the Apple Treat Box. You can do so many things with this box. Make a snack for your child to bring the teacher as a way to help them break the ice. You can also fill it with goodies like pencils, erasers, and other teacher essentials.Â
I used a bright school paper for the box that has the adorable numbers on it. It is "Numbers" by Deena Rutter with Echo Park Paper Co.Â For the apple, I used a red polka dot embossed Bazzill Cardstock. The Stem is an olive Bazzill Cardstock, the leaf, is a lime green Bazzill. The decorative wheel with the ABC 123, is one of the sentiments from this treat box set. I backed it with a die cut scalloped circle and sewed a little green button in the center with some red crafting thread. The yellow paper I printed it on has a grid pattern on it. It is Simply Stories - Vintage Bliss - Yellow Grid/Dictionary. I finished itÂ off with a red polka dotted grosgrain Offray Ribbon. The white shine accents on the apple, leaf and stem are hand drawn using a white GellyÂ Roll ink pen.
Â Here is the link to the pattern if you are interested in creating your own adorable treat boxes.
I enjoyed creating the cute little box. It is a pretty quick project if you are looking for something to make for your child's teacher. The template comes with clear instructions on putting the project together. This would be a great item to keep in mind when creating a Holiday Gift for the teacher as well!
Thanks For Looking & Happy Crafting.
