MCT What a Treat Wednesday


It's What a Treat Wednesday with My Creative Time, and I have a quick and easy treat to share with you today!  Okay, here was the scenario.  It was Sunday night at 7 PM.  I was absolutely exhausted after working in my classroom for the last three days straight, but it was finally ready for my new students to enter the next morning.  However, as the Social Committee chair for our staff, I really wanted to make a little something for all of our new staff members (and we have a LOT of them).  My Creative Time to the rescue!

I pulled out the Fancy Trifold Card Die and cut 12 of these.  Then I used the apple die from Love to Learn and quickly put together a dozen cute little apples.  On each card I stamped my sentiment, from Write On, wrote a little note in the inside, and then adhered a Ghirardelli chocolate with some double-sided tape.  I closed it up, tied it with some hemp, and then adhered the apple with some foam tape.  Finished.  All 12 in 1 1/2 hours!  Probably could have been faster if I hadn't been so tired! 


Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have for you today!

Faster??? That was about 7.5 minutes per treat! Sounds pretty fast to me. You even had some sweet treats to put in them...when I get them I tend to eat them! Your treats turned out so cute...perfect for a welcoming teacher gift.
