Today May 3rd is
National Teacher Day-
Teacher Appreciation Week
Date - First Tuesday in May / First Full week in May

and over at Cooking With Cricut there is a Month long
Blogoversary Celebration with postings and Giveaways
Everyday during the Month of May - and Everyday
there will be some kind of Celebration post!

And being that I am a Teacher Librarian, I chose Today!

I created this box for my niece to take to her teacher, Mrs. Thomas.

I recycled the acrylic box
Measured, cut and scored Red cardstock
Measured, cut and scored green PP
Measure, cut and scored apple PP
Tied box using Red, Green and Red/White ribbon/twine
Added a button and a wooden pencil
Tied Red/White twine around box
Added a button and a wooden bus in the middle
Cricut Cuts:
Wrap It Up: Apple card at 2.75" and its layers
Preserves: Apple layer [white] (hand cut at the bite's edge)

My 8 year old niece is so happy that she is taking her teacher a gift.
The box contains pencils, Skittles, Hershey's kisses, candles and
a bottle cover/top (or a convert your can into a bottle thingy)
and card game...
Update: Teacher loved it! -- Teacher does not speak Spanish and my niece speaks very little (I know, we have to fix that with my sister!)-- My niece told teacher that her "Tia" (aunt) made it... teacher replied...tell your Tia, muchas gracias!!  LOVE IT!
