My friend Cindy and I were playing with the Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit die a few weeks ago creating projects for the Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat that we are hosting this month. With that on my mind I came up with the idea to make an apple! With school just starting and apple picking season upon us wouldn’t that little box be a perfect apple. A few weeks have passed by and I’ve been busy traveling as you may have noticed so I didn’t get to try to make an apple until this week. I decided to use it for one of my Stamper’s Club projects for Friday night. Look at how cute it turned out –
Here is how I made it:
- I cut the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit die out of Real Red card stock. You cut two pieces and glue the bottoms together – I used the new Fast Fuse adhesive – its sticky.
- Then I sponged all the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink and a Stampin’ Sponge. I wanted it to have some darker areas around the edges on the apple.
- I filled the inside of the box with caramels – of course.
- On the handle I tied some Pear Pizzazz ribbon.
- Stamped “hello Sweet Friend” in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and cut it with the oval shaped tag that comes with the box thinlits.
- I cut a leaf from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the small leaf die in the Fall Fest Framelits. Glued that to the base of my tag.
- I wanted to add just a little something else to the tag so I pulled out a Real Red candy dot and put that on it. But it made me think of a lady bug – so I decided sure – it can be a lady bug – I pulled out one of my Project Life journaling pens and added dots to the dot and two little antenna for the lady bug. Cute!
- I tied on my tag with some Real Red Bakers’ Twine.
It’s a quick project and super cute!
