Apple for the Teacher

I made a few apple clippies, this time I thought they would make nice notepaper holders. I am sure Miss Lavoie can use them. I am finishing up the paint cans. I am still stealing glass jars from the recycle bin. This was a pizza sauce jar. I am going to buy a few mason jars because as hard as I try I can not get the pickle scent out of the pickle jar.

I always wonder, how did the apple become associated with teachers. I also wonder if teachers wish another fruit would replace it. Why not a pear, a pineapple or a peach? But then again, it is nice knowing that somethings never change!

I filled this jar with hard candy. The jar looks really pretty with all the different color candies and wrappers. Miss Lavoie, this is the start to your apple collection.

How do you paper the lids of the jars? They look so smooth. Your crafts are so beautiful and inspirational. Everytime I look at your blog it makes me want to run to the craft store. Hmm I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing :)
