Level of difficulty: Easy

Ages it is suitable for: anyone over 7 years old
Time Required: 7-15 minutes, depending on skills and previous crafting experience

Materials needed:
a piece of card-making craft paper, dimensions: , color: light blue
a piece of any kind of paper, dimensions: , color: light pink
a ready-made mini bouquet with a ribbon, or a medium-sized flower ( made of fabric or paper or craft foam sheet)
craft watercolors: red, yellow
4 self-adhesive dots, color: green
a small green fabric leaf (felt is best)
a small, flat, rounded and smooth beach pebble

Tools:
scissors
pencil
CD black marker (with a small-size point)
a black ballpoint pen
art paint brush (Filbert or Round type are best for this project)
glue

Instructions:

Fold the blue paper in half so as to form the card. Glue the small pink paper approximately in the center of the front of your card. Stick the self-adhesive dots on the corners of the pink paper (one dot for each corner) as shown in the picture.

Leave the card aside for a while and paint the pebble yellow – paint the sides too. Let it dry well.

Take your pencil and draw the outline of an apple on your yellow pebble – the apple should be almost as big as the pebble. Paint the apple red. Then trace the outline with your CD black marker to have clear border-lines. When the paint has dried very well, glue the leaf on the top of the apple. Let it dry. Glue the pebble on the left side of the pink paper. On the right side, glue the bouquet or the flower you’ve chosen. Wait till the glue is completely dry.

After the glue has dried, take your black ballpoint pen and write the words “Thank you” on the front side of your teacher appreciation card.
