Hello crafty blog friends! It’s school time once again and we have a lovely, school themed challenge at The Shabby Tea Room. I’ve prepared a little gift for a teacher…

PaperPrimrose TSTR1

This little box is the perfect size for a bright, shiny apple.  The template for the box and print out for the tag are from the Cutting Cafes’ Apple Box Holder file.  The lid is made from the Paper Temptresses Basis Black Card Stock 80# . I wanted a heavy weight black to stabilize the lid and this one was perfect for the job.  The smooth black surface was given some additional texture with a swiss dot embossing folder.  The dots came up very well…too well in fact 😉  The embossing was so crisp that the little apple embellishment wasn’t sticking 🙄  With the aid of my rolling pin, I was able to flatten the dots out, leaving plenty of texture for my liking, but making it a breeze to adhere the little apple…

Apples are such lovely things.  The only thing to be done to improve upon the beauty of nature was to polish it in a cloth and add a sweet tag (from the same file as the box), printed onto Classic Linen 80# paper. The yellow edge and red apples were added with Copic markers…

Wouldn’t this just tickle any teacher?!…

The lid has a homemade embellishment made from an old discarded dictionary page, a heart punch and red and green ink pads. Step 1. Punch 10 (or more) hearts.  Step 2. Holding a few of the punched hearts together, round the bottom point off the hearts using a scissor, to change them into apple shapes. Step 3. Ink the edges of the hearts, with a finger dauber or ink applicator. Step 4. Fold the apple shapes down the middle. Step 5. Glue the right half of a shape to the left half of the next shape. Continue until all the shapes are attached. Step 6. Adhere the assemblage to the box top. Step 7. Cut two leaves and ink with green ink before adhering to the box. Step 8. Make someone smile with this sweet gift!

Now I hope you will have a look at this inspiration photo and join us for the challenge!…
