An Apple

Hello Everybody!

It's time for a new challenge at Clearly iStamp!  The challenge this time is to do a school related project.

I made a 3-D apple.  I used the digi papers and sentiment from the Candy Apple set and the worm from the Time for School set.

I loved the papers from the Candy Apple set.  They felt very fallish to me and gave some depth to one side of the apple.  I used the My World Cricut cartridge to cut out about 24 red apples.  Then I cut out 2 of each of the 3 patterns from the digi set.  I inked the edges.  Then I folded them in half and glued on half to the other.  Now this technique works perfect when both sides of the die are symmetrical.  My apples were a little off, but I tried to match like with like sides.  I had to trim a little in a few places.  The leaf is also from that cartridge and I used a Cricut marker to outline the leaf on both side.  I used barn door distress ink to ink up the sentiment.

I made the worm twice-but flipped the second one.  I added googly eyes on each side and colored it with Copic markers.

Here is the back side.  I am excited for my son to give it to his teacher! :)

Here are the details for this time's challenge:

Dates: Aug 16th - Aug 29th (11pm Central Time)

I'm so excited to see your school projects!  Until next time my friends...How you like them apples? ;)

This is so cute! And such a great idea for a little teacher gift. It's the traditional apple, but not something she has to eat. It can sit on her desk all year!
