Welcome fellow teachers back to school with this sweet treat!!

Welcome back your fellow teachers with this cute, sweet treat!  What a great way to be welcomed back into the new school year.  This is also something that you could do for a new teacher either brand new to teaching or new to your school.  It is a nice way to say "hello" and welcome aboard!!  Now I am off to making quite a few for some of my buds that I work with.  I go back to work on Thursday and the kids go back next Wednesday!!  Lots to do!!!

Materials used for project:
Makin' the Grade cartridge-used the apple on page 120-cut at 1 1/2 inches
Storybook cartridge-used the scroll frame on page 71-cut at 1 3/4 inches
black cardstock-cut at 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches-scored at 1 3/4 inches
green and brown markers

I colored the stem and leaf on the apple in lieu of layering.  It was much faster and easier.  You could cut out your saying but I have so many to make and I thought it would be easier to just write the sentiment.  I wish I could find a "Back to School" stamp.  It would surely get used LOL!!
