H2H Challenge: Teacher Appreciation--May Entry #2

Dear Scrappers,
Happy Mother's Day!!!
I hope you have a great either with your kids or with your Mom, a dear friend, the family :-)
Today is a good day to share my recent project: teacher appreciation's bookmarks/ goodie bags toppers.

I made this bookmarks following the same basics that I did for my Mother's Day ones:
I used my gypsy to design the bookmarks with the carts: My World, Wild Cards, and both CTMH's Artise and Art Philosophy.
For the base I used a frame shape cut from the Art Philosophy cart and stamped with a frame from the Frame Flair stamp set. I bended the cuts in half and added magnets to each site. I covered the outer magnet with circle cuts stamped with the Kuddos and Hero's sentiment stamps.

I cut the apple and its layers from the My World cart at 2" and the sentiment from Wild Card at 3". I tried to cut it smaller, but it kept ruining my paper, so I had to use a brand new blade and cut the sentiment bigger.
I ended up using a white marker to add some contrast to my sentiment, though.
I used the bookmarks to top some biscotti's that I bought at Costco and hid them in my kids folders for their teachers to find. I gave some to carline volunteers and other teachers in my kids' lives.

I hope you enjoy my latest project and please leave a comment ;-)
Have a wonderful week,
