Hello! Amanda from Popper & Mimi here today and I’m so excited that school has officially started! Today I am sharing a fun way for your kids to greet their new teachers this year.
My kids are always a little nervous to meet their new teachers so I created a fun and inexpensive project to help them break the ice.
Paper apples are easy to make and only require a piece of patterned paper or cardstock. I used patterned paper from Pebbles’ Home+Made, Back to School, and Birthday Wishes collections. Using a variety of patterned paper adds a bit of extra charm to each individual apple.
To begin making each apple, cut 12 apples from a single piece of 12″x12″ paper. Choose a die, cut file, or pattern that is symmetrical. I used my die cutting machine to cut and score the apples at the same time. Head on over to my blog for a brief tutorial on how to add a score line to a cut file.
Adhere the apple slices together until you have formed a little stack of apple slices. Apply additional adhesive to the top piece, open up the apple, and adhere the slices together forming a complete apple.
