Teacher's Gift

It's been a while since I've posted, I know. We have been very busy with end-of-the-year school "stuff"...which brings me to the Teacher Journal Jar Project that I have posted. When Nichole posted this a while ago, I knew I wanted to "CASE" it for Lance's teacher of the past two years. The cover of the journal is leather, so I chose to make a belly band instead of something permanently adhered. I do not have "Teacher's Apple", so I used my adorable apple from my LAD Tutti Fruity set. I had to ink the different areas of the apple with markers to get the various colors, and I think it turned out pretty well.

Stamps: Tutti Fruity (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Neenah Natural White
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write Markers
Accessories: Pure Poppy Topnotch Twill (PTI), Circle Nestabilities, Soho Designer Hardware (SU), Numbers Collage Cuttlebug Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals
Here is the complete gift with the Bath & Body Irresistible Apple products in the basket. I slid the belly band up for the photo, but I've decided to leave it in the correct position when the gift is given. I hope she likes it!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today! I hope your weekend is a great one!!
