You're The Apple of My Eye by Fleurette F Bloom

Here’s a great way to let the teacher know how much you appreciate and like him or her. Treat the teacher to a bushel basket of sweet sentiments! You can even put a real apple inside! Fun fact: Why is it traditional to give a teacher an apple? It originated a long time ago when families would help support teachers by giving them fresh fruit. Apples are easy to keep as other fruits perish quickly. It is also a symbol of knowledge and health! I added the butterfly to symbolize soaring to great heights, achieving your goals, plus it’s just so darn cute!

Design Tips

Fleurette - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Using a paper stack will guarantee all your colors will work great together.
  • I chose the DCWV ”Grade School” Stack because it had so many fun school themed papers.
  • Inking or chalking edges will give your project added dimension and flair
  • A little glitter goes a long way, gives that added shine and professional look

Your child’s teacher will be delighted with the thoughtfulness of this gift. Use the little cards inside to write a little note or some fun facts. Be creative and most importantly have fun!
