An Apple for the Teacher

Its Zacks last day at his Primary School today, so we decided to make his teacher a present to say thank you for teaching him & taking care of him. Shes most definately been a fair teacher, scolding when necessary & turning a blind eye when appropriate.

I asked him if he'd like me to make her a bag charm/keyring and explained my idea. He liked it so I set about making it.

Once that was finished we decided it would look nice as the main embellishment on her card so I made an easle card, went through my scraps for a suitable background & then finally went through my pile of buttons for a "stopper".

I fastened all together and turned the red button I'd found into the "a" of thank you.

The thought behind it all was the saying "an apple for the teacher" , and having found a wooden apple I'd received as part of a RAK years ago I thought it was perfect.


  1. This is beautiful, as soon as I saw it I thought of twilight series lol! how sad am I! hope she loved it x

  2. Perfect! Absolutely perfect! You are so clever K!

  3. Fab :-) Speaking as a teacher, I would have loved to receive this, so I'm sure she will love it too!

  4. It's lovely. Perfect for a teacher!

    A friend of a friend once gave me a real apple for my birthday for "my continued good health!"


  5. another brilliant make K I bet his teacher was dead chuffed!

  6. what a great gift, i would love to receive something like this, why do secondary kids grow out of this?

  7. Thats lovely, what a great idea.

  8. I love love love this ... I wish I was Zack's teacher!
