Teacher~First Day of School Treats

Hi everyone!
I have another project to share with you today!
But if you are looking for my This to That Challenge #4 with The Digi Bistro please click here.

Back to school time for my boys today and I wanted to make something little for them to take to their teachers :) ~ Nothing like a little kiss up right from the beginning right!?!?!
This is what I made for them....

I made Milk Cartons  using a file from The Cutting Cafe.
Not too long ago Regina had a special...all the milk cartons for one price...yup I jumped at the chance and purchased them all.
This is the plain one I cut out on paper from Me & My Big Idea's
The background frame is cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 2.6" and then stamped with SU Petite Patterns in Mellow Moss Ink
The apple is from Create a Critter, cut at 1.96" and stamped with PK~491 Everyday Character Faces
I did add some white gel pen to the faces and Creative Inspirations Paint in Winter Frost.
The tag was cut from The Digi Bistro's Tag It! SVG file at 2.5" and inked with Mellow Moss, painted with Winter Frost and stamped with Memento Ink~Afterthoughts sentiments from SU.
The whole this was put together with red line tape, filled with Hershey bars and tied up with Martha Stewart Fern Seam Binding.

Hope the teachers enjoy their treats :)

I am entering this into the following Challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut~Challenge Me Monday #76~ABC's/123's
Peachy Keen Challenge~Let's Face it Friday~ Back to School
Creative Inspirations Paints~Back to School
CCCC#30~Gypsy Wanderings
