ABC Challenge - Shopping Our Stash!

Good Morning, Crafty Peeples!
This week at Shopping Our Stash, we are challenged to create a project using ABC!  Please let us know what your ABC elements are (ex.: Apple, Boat, Chair).   I needed to send a welcome gift to my Grandson's new teacher, so I took this challenge as an opportunity to do so.  I think my design is close enough to the spirit of the challenge that they won't kick me off the team!
My ABC's are:  Apple, Basket and Bookmarks, Clips and Composition Books.

4th Grade Fun Basket
One benefit of private school is small class sizes.  
My grandson's class has 8 students.  
Great for the students and the teacher!  
Good for me! I could almost get everything into this small basket.
 I decided to leave the composition books uncovered and simply applied cute stickers!  A few months ago, I almost dumped the big letter post it notes..glad I didn't.  Making covers for them only took a few seconds.  The composition books I have had for two years.  
This challenge helped me deplete some of the kid stuff in my stash.  In addition to the items in the basket, I am sending the school's Art Department a shopping bag full of stickers and paper.

Here is how it was boxed and presented to Ms. Michelle
Lots of tags and journal cards for her along with a big paper clip!

Can't wait to see your spin on our ABC Challenge.
