Ok, so this might be a little old-school, but I think the end result is cool. It reminds me of a craft we might have done at vbs or something. But remember, it's all in the packaging...
...am I right? Tie up a little set of notecards with a brown ribbon and you have yourself a great little gift for someone or keep 'em pretty for yourself.
Here are my supplies:
apples..cards..stamp pads in fall colors..some fall stamps..alphabet stamps..ribbon
I got everything at Joann's. Save your coupons for Joann's, it helps...really!
You may cut your apples either way. Up and down gives you the traditional looking apple print.
And crosswise gives you a cool star print in the middle.
Make sure to wipe all the excess juice off of the cut apple. I just used a plain old paper towel. Then take your stamp pad to the apple. I did a few practice prints on a sheet of paper just to get a feel for it. It also helps to fold up a paper towel under your card so your apple can print evenly.
See the cool star print? I jazzed it up with some fall stamps I got for a buck.
I also used my letters...just in case you weren't sure:) And my sharpie to add some detail.
Just a fun little way to help welcome in the fall!
