Teacher Appreciation Cards

I know Teacher's Day isn't until May, but I saw this idea in Paper Crafts special issue 350 Cards & Gifts and had to try it. The teacher card set (page 10) was made by Jennifer McGuire.





This set is for the music teacher so I paper pieced the Papertrey Ink apple image with some tiny sheet music paper by Jenni Bowlin. I colored the background with a copic marker. I strategically stamped the leaf in between 'lines' so I could color it.


After cutting out the {32} apples I used the Xyron to make them into stickers.








I used a lot of different small patterned papers for the other cards. This one is my favorite.
I found the free digi image of the notebook paper on Splitcoast. I printed on 4 x 6 paper and made the image 3 1/2" x 5 ". I used a 1/8" hole punch to make the holes on the left edge.
For once I am way ahead of schedule on a project! These were so fun to make. Thanks for stopping to see my little apple cards:)

Beautiful cards and details. You are so right to wish for an apple-shaped die - That was a lot of fussy cutting, but really a nice effect. Love your strategically placed leaves for coloring :-)
