Bitten By The Bug with The Cutting Cafe'

It's Sunday night and I still have one more day off! WOOHOO!!! I love long weekends! *smile* It's time to reveal the new Bitten By The Bug challenge for this week. Regina asked us to use the present cut from Pooh and Friends. I've been wanting to make a special treat for my grandson's Kindergarten teacher, and this gave me the perfect opportunity!
I used an Apple shaped card from The Cutting Cafe' to make both the note card set, as well as the card for the teacher. The "Thanks Teacher" word circle is another downloadable stamp that is from The Cutting Cafe' called Teacher Huge Circle Set. And then I put the present cut in the middle of the word circle.

I tied on an apple charm (it's a little hard to see) with some twine from PTI. The paper I used is digital and the green cardstock is Bazzill. The card bases are Kraft paper from PTI. I also decorated the top of a jewelry box (a set of A2 cards fit in these boxes perfectly!) to hold the set.


I cut the cards out with my Pazzle machine, but you could just as easily print the pattern onto your cardstock and pattern paper and cut them out yourself. Check the post directly below this one for a chance to win a free set of Halloween This and That digi stamps from The Cutting Cafe'!!
That's it for today! Hope you enjoyed my project, and please be sure and check out all the other projects by the rest of the Bitten By The Bug designers.
