The inspiration for this project was all in the paper. The polkas and checks had me totally envisioning apples (now mind you I've never seen an orange apple, but let's pretend it's really yellow and go with that).
A lot of the projects that I've been sharing for this May challenge have been pretty easy enough for kids. This one here is no exception!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Use the larger of the two circle punches to create the base shape of the apple. Insert the circle back into the punch and clip a little off. Rotate it 180 degrees and punch out a smaller ellipse. This will become the bottom of the apple.
With the small circle punch, cut a shape on green paper. Insert it back into the punch and make an ellipse with it. Use it for the "leaf". I used a hexagon punch to make the apple's "stem", but it's optional here. Make a hexagon, then use the scissors to snip a piece off. The higher point becomes the top of the stem.
Attach the stem to the leaf first, then attach both with the crafter's tape to the backside of the apple.
Easy as apple pie!
Total project time: about 20 minutes for six apples.
