Teacher Appreciation Basket

I made this basket for my daughter's 3rd grade teacher for Teacher Appreciation Day.

I got the basket from Michael's for only $3.50, added some ribbon I already had, placed some craft foam in the bottom, covered it with some leftover Easter grass, put in some Granny Smith and Pink Lady apples, and last made the sticks.

I used these Cricut cartridges:
George and Basic Shapes for the star cut @ 3
Cricut Sampler for the Thanks cut @ 3
A Child's Year for the 2 apples cut @ 3
Doodlecharms for the watermelon cut @ 3
Locker Talk for the A+ cut @ 1 3/4
Graphically Speaking for the chalkboard cut @ 3 1/2
Celebrations for the banner cut @ 4
Wild Card for the #1 Teacher cut @ 6
Alphalicious for the You're the Best cut @ 2

Too many carts I know but I think the end product turned out pretty good.  I learned from doing this project that in the future to use less carts.  Using this many carts was very time consuming!

Here's the Basket and the card together!
