I was at the local Dollar Tree and spotted these metal bookmarks in the craft section, and I was very impressed with the quality of them (almost as much as the price!).
The apple is from Create a Critter and I hid contour on the face of the top layer, and instead used a Peachy Keen face Stamp. It was cut at 1.5 inches. The plaid paper is perhaps from a DCWV fall stack (it was from my scraps drawer so not entirely sure) and the ribbon is by American Crafts.
This project reminded me of one I did in September with the same apple, and I think it would be a wonderful teacher/aide gift this week. These are Post It Holders and you can see a tutorial I did on them here (you would just skip the parts pertaining to the shaker fronts. I believe these apples were probably at least 2 inches but I really have no idea! I used black paper and white pen to simulate a chalkboard effect.
Well I hope you got an idea or two and made it worth your visit! No more plays until the next school year which means more time to craft!
