School Days with The Cutting Cafe

This week's inspiration at The Cutting Cafe centers around school.  I thought back to when I taught school to decide what to make.  When I taught first grade, I used these boy and girl shaped craft sticks for bookmarks.  I created an apple box using the apple from All About School.
  The heart sentiment is from The School Years set.
  I printed two apples and then used the bottom of the smallest nesting box template (adjusted the size a little) to create the box inbetween.  
 I painted the boys and girls and stuck them into styrofoam.  This would be a sweet little teacher gift that could be kept right at hand to "save your spot."  Be sure to check The Cutting Cafe blog later this week for all the other school projects.  Hope you saw the dress projects last week, they were awesome!  

If you're like me and you're stuck in this amazing heat wave, I hope you find a way to stay cool this week!  I'm glad you stopped by...
