Teacher Appreciation Apple Box

I know. I'm a little early for teacher appreciation gifts but ...I made this box for a tutorial that I put together over for my Dollar Find Friday post over at the TSG Blog but didn't a chance to post it here. So here it is in all of it's appley goodness :)

I water coloured the school house with my Tombow Markers and then placed it on a sponged background for the main panel. The school house and sentiments are from one of the There She Goes newer releases called Believe in You. The box is something that Angela and I found at our Dollarama, along with the foam brushes and acrylic paint for the wooden box.

I thought that this box would look really sweet filled with teacher supplies like pencils, rubber bands, paper clips, erasers or some really yummy goodies like chocolate or candies. When I give this to one of the sweet ladies who teaches my children, I'm going to wrap it up in clear cellophane and attach a big lime green bow :D

Just a reminder that this is the very last chance to register for my online Water Colouring with Tombow Markers Class. The registration closes at the end of the day on October 1st and this class will not be offered again this fall.
