An Apple for Christmas

Don't forget...you've got until Thursday evening to win!

Some of you have posted comments on the wrong post...I love each one but want to make sure you get your chance in. You need to go to the links in the post below to comment. Good Luck!


I started to make an "apple for the teacher" card this weekend. as the final addition to my auction donation. As I looked at that awesome Apple Shaped Card from The Cutting Cafe,


I thought how easy it would be to keep cutting and turn this great shape into a box....so I did! Super simple and so fun. (If you'd like a tutorial w/pictures, just let me know and I'll show you what I did. My sentiment tag is also from The Cutting Cafe's brand new set, Tiny Box w/Sentiments set. Check out the previous post for how you can WIN this set!!


This box holds 9 luscious Lindt chocolates. You can put those in my stocking anytime! Wouldn't this be perfect for a special teacher, the mailperson, a neighbor, a friend, or anyone you want to bless?


Here's my basket, ready to wrap and deliver.



Supplies:

Apple template - The Cutting Cafe
Digi Stamps - The Cutting Cafe
Paper - PTI Pure Poppy, SU Creamy Carmel, Martha Stewart Christmas pack 2008
Accessories- Scor-Tape, sewing machine, Martha Stewart Crystal Flakes, ribbon, eyelet, Spellbinders Rectangle dies

Okay...now that is just too stinkin' cute!!! I love it and would definitely be interested in seeing a tutorial on how you made this into a box, if it's not too much trouble. I work in the field of education and would enjoy making a few of these for some coworkers.
Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent!
Have a great day!
