Apple Greetings

Getting ready to ship those kiddos off to school? 
Why not make a little pocket for them to tuck in their new pencils.
(Or gift to a teacher...who can never have enough in her stash!)

Here I used the Apple Treat Box svg file
from The Cutting Cafe.  Cut two apples and two stems. 
Just remember to "flip" the image if you are using printed paper so that your shapes are irror images.
That way, they line up when you line them up.

Stitch around...or use Glue Dots ©.
Sponge the edges with ink for a vintage look.
I created a tag using Gel-a-tins: Make a Wish.

Green Leaves Rumple Ribbon is the perfect color for implied apple leaves!
Be sure to use Craft Glue Dots © to adhere the ribbon and tag.
Pile in some new #2 pencils...

And, your student, or teacher, will have a smile on their face every time 
they need to get out a new pencil!
