CCC August Blog Hop: Back to School

Welcome to my stop on the Catherine and Cathy Create Back to School Blog Hop!
You should have come from Megin Gallagher's blog if you are following in order. 

It's getting closer, the kids are heading back to school soon!
I've enjoyed being home with them this summer. When they go to school, I'm going to look for a new job. So before I do I am crafting up a storm. 

I like to make presents for the teachers at the beginning of the year that can serve as a year long memory saver. A place to jot down funny things that the class did, or the pictures taken in school. Last year I made an envelope book each. This year I was thinking apples.

 Using cherry cobbler ink on whisper white card stock I created lids and exploding box bases. Smooshing ink on my craft mat I gave the paper a bit of colouring, then added stamped images in Bravo Burgundy. 
The inside is only slightly embellished as I won't know their teachers names  until the day before school starts, or even the first day. I want to personalize them when I find out. 
Now you are off to the last stop on the hop, Cathy Caines' blog.
Hope you've enjoyed the great projects by all the designers.
